St. Francis pt II
test renders---looks too plastic
[ top of wrist, tendon tension stage I]
[wrist development stage, one, bone graft prep/tension]
[wrist development stage II, bone graft ]
So, my computer crashed but here are some digi-sketches of what i've been doing.
anatomically modeling a hand with all the bones, tendons, muscles, blood vessels...well, it was tedious and took a long time, but it looks cool. St. Francis' holy wound is transformed into a surgical opening. The opening provides direct access to the wrist and begins
to graft the 7 carpals together into the shape of a scarab. [elevation, stage one]
The ancient egyptians thought the the scarab was holy and had a direct relationship to the sun. Because of this, they were associated with rejuvination and ressurection, as the sun died and reappeared the following day.
The bone scarab is a semi-living deity constructed of living material. Once completed the architecture then begins to mummify the bony mass, pulling the tendons and tissue close to wrap and preserve the bone artifact.
