The beast in the devil and the devil in the beast…

The beast in the devil and the devil in the beast…

made with: “the clay”, a taxadermied bear head from a bear skin rug, a bear skull, bear jaw bone, bear teeth, deer antlers, buffalo horn, glass eyes, broken ceramic birds and a smashed porcelain hart, bear enamel pin, earrings from an abandoned funeral home.

size: 14 long 13 wide and 13 tall

story: this sculpture is part man, part woman, part beast and part the free spirited animal from within us all known as the devil… I was inspired by the Lara Messersmith-Glavin reading of Bearskin Retold. I made this for the cover of her chapbook/CD release as part of collaboration between the two of us… I’m beyond honored.

seems to be the almost second part of the beast within series… it is reminiscent of a sculpture I did almost two years ago entitled the beast within the being and the beast within me. you can see that piece here:

here is a link to lara’s reading of the work that inspired this piece:

you can buy her book with audio cd from me, first week in march at the latest.
