Fragile Strength

The spine is exquisite: beautiful and fragile like lace, yet like lace its structure gives it strength. Bone tissue resembles Lacy threads, delicately knitted together.
Skeletons for anatomical study are articulated with beautiful brass fastenings and often stored in timber boxes that age beautifully and carry a haunting sense of ceremony and dignity

      This piece is drawn in thread and mounted with brass pins in a found vintage wooden box
It will be exhibited at the Upcoming Art in Science, Science in Art exhibition at St Vincents Hospital Gallery, Melbourne
