THE AMAZING SIAMESE TWINS!
Sold to a private collector in a silent auction.
In some "special cases", ordinary words and pictures fall short of describing a particular sculpture, so I also offer the following short video, which lends additional insight on this most unusual piece.
On a rare occasions, I take some time to create an ambitious challenge for myself. While this configuration has been attempted before by others, the results always appeared uncomfortable and stiff, with neither character seemingly independent of the other. By blending character with function, this sculpture exceeded all of my expectations and will remain an accomplishment that I am very proud of.
Animations for each side include;
Upper lip smiles
Special attire (split)
Special sculpted hands
Ability for most animations to be operated independently or simultaneously.
These elderly conjoined twins represent more than just an incredible mechanical sculpture. They were also created to raise and reflect many social issues.
ONE BLACK!... ONE WHITE!... TOGETHER FOR LIFE!
A wonderous marvel of anamatomical mis-configuration"
