Artist Statement: 

The article inspiring this piece was talking about the strange collection of wax throat sculptures depicting the effects of sexually transmitted diseases. The famous owner of this collection was to move in with his new wife and she did not approve of this collection and did not want him to bring it into her multi million dollar home when the couple got married. This work is a combination of parasitic growths and traditional beauty, highlighting peoples differences.
