Title: Bones

Class: Sculpture 1

Project Title and Requirment: Blockhead

The purpose of this project was to look at a cube and what makes it a cube. Is it just the space around, or the interior? And the class had free range of their materials used along with the message behind it.

Materials Used:

Red Candle wax, Metal horseshoes, Leather, Dirt

Scale: Roughly 15×15″

Artist Statement:

This piece is no longer just a cube but a coffin that has been pulled out of the earth. It symbolizes the horse racing industry and the slaughter of many loved horses, after the removal of the slots from the tracks.
