This work is a revision of a sculpture, which was developed about 15 years ago. I re-sculpted the arm and rerouted the umbilical cord to appear as if it were coming out of the ground. The baby appears as if it may have some deformities or disorders of some kind. A connection is made to "mother Earth", and since the appearance of the child is somewhat dissonant, one is asked to question what the conditions of gestation were (ie. What genetic disorders were passed from the parents?). I am interested in the possibility that birds might perch on some of the forms, which were placed in a way that would accommodate such interaction, or perhaps insects would do the same.
