This is the finished piece of work based on a cross section of an ‘alien’ spine. Much like the previous test piece in an earlier post I’ve used a blend of polymer clays to achieve a bone texture and emphasised certain aspects with metal and copper leaf. For those of you that know your Sci-fi films you would have noticed that the name of this sculpture is a quote from the film Aliens, it’s my favourite part of the film. As I enjoyed making this sculpture so much I am considering turning it into a series of work – creating unusual ‘alien’ bones that some archaeologist could have excavated perhaps haha?!
