Exploded Skulls Sculptures
Murcian Metalmorphosis
Murcian Rock

I Love You to Death

 

The inspiration for these Sculptures is the “Beauchene skull,” (or exploded skull) first created by French anatomist Claude Beauchene for scientific study in the mid-1800s. For me the human skull is a complex puzzle of immense beauty. I chose to enhance it by covering each piece of caste bone in 24 Karat gold that makes “Murcian Metalmorphosis 2013”glow right before our eyes, so that we are moved by its image both intellectually and emotionally and appreciate Art and Science together.
