|The scene ... An eerie night, filled with dark dim colors, bleak and tortured, leaving
nothing to the imagination. Dismantled, limb from limb, joint from socket, cut and
twisted tendons, torn and mangled ligaments ... These are moments, even a monster
shouldn't have to endure.
|"What if the Frankenstein Monster were real?"
If you stripped away the fantasy bits of the story (namely resurrecting a dead corpse) and focused on
the real and possible grafting of limbs to a living subject... What if there was this soul-less surgeon
operating out of a basement surgical lab (sometime in the past)... And he was trying to become the
first surgeon to perfect the technique of grafting limbs and internal organs to a live subject. Cruel and
unnecessary surgery upon a hap-less victim, possibly a homeless individual, or condemned man.
I envisioned this man who would have mis-matched limbs, his torso covered in many, surgical
procedures (brain surgery, torso procedures, etc). All of the wounds would be in various stages of
healing as this would have been going on and on for a long time.
Strapped to a table with little to no anesthetic.
I copied and pasted this text from the sculptors website.
This sculpt is 1/8 scale and it's one of the most intriguing pieces I've ever done.
