Petri Dish: P-1948F Human Female Child

The petri dish is used to grow, test and examine bacteria and mold. This sample is "growing" a human female child on a rug.

It is 107 cm round x 19 cm high (about 42 inches round)
Critiques welcome. Is it disturbing, or pleasant to look at, or both, or neither...? Impossible to post in Open or Structured Critiques.

Being born places you at a greater risk of dying later in life.

Re: Petri Dish: P-1948F Human Female Child

I have no idea what to say about this, honestly. It looks more like collage than sculpture to me, although I suppose it could be called an assemblage. That kind of sculpture is outside my self-taught experience, sorry! Are the pieces attached, or is it like a sand sculpture or snow globe, moving around when you shake it?

Great piece.
If you take raw photographic paper, and put different liquids on it, coffee, juice whatever it will react and create a reaction.
Putting a photo in a petri dish is good, the biological element still needs to be formed.
Could just add any liquid, let it dissolve into the photo and then dry to make it more "petri".
Up to you, its your work.
