Mantisism (homisuicide) sculpture. 

I am taking a 5 week online class taught by Simon Lee for sculpting. Every week I am given an assignment or homework to do. This is my first weeks assignment. I’m doing this while traveling around the world so I have to make due with whatever I can get as far as materials. This clay isn’t the the suggested material for this project. Hopefully I can get my hands on the correct medium for the next one. I did this one in Evian, France. 
The concept was to come up with a humanish type object. Obviously I went with a pregnant humanish praying mantis type diety. I’m not sure how Simon is going to feel about it, but I’m definitely liking the direction. I enjoy the darker fantasy style works, so why not take it into that direction? I learned a lot just from this first week, I can’t wait to see what we can do next week. Carl
