Imaginatio humana (Creature Bust Sculpture)
I'm not fully done with the sculpt and have yet to paint the head and add hair. The tongue, teeth and eye are finished though. It has a foam base with wet air dry clay for the basic shape and then a thin outside layer of AVE's fix-it sculpt.
When we were young our "imagination" ran wild. Were we went and what we saw all seemed so real. That is until we were told that the things we've been "imagination" are nothing but dreams and fairy tails thus killing our fantasy's. We begin to no longer own our reality and our "imagination" begin to fade and die. This creature represent a killed dream, It's head mounded on a wooden plague as the trophy for its murder and reminds us that what we believe to be real will always be real. I want adults, teens and children to walk into the room and question everything they've be told about reality when viewing this life-like piece. To aspire to "imagine" and play again.
I have given this creature the species name "Imaginatio humana" which is Latin for "(From the) human imagination".
