Sleeping in the Rick-While this is a very simple paper sculpture, one could press more shape onto the flat pieces of the fox, giving it a better 3d effect. The grasses could all be worked in a similar fashion, as well. Whether flat, or shaped, it all depends on how much time you want to spend on it.
Beautiful and thought-provoking porcelain sculptures by Kate MacDowell. "These pieces are in part responses to environmental stressors including climate change, toxic pollution, and gm crops. They also borrow from myth, art history, figures of speech and other cultural touchstones. In some pieces aspects of the human figure stand-in for ourselves and act out sometimes harrowing, sometimes humorous transformations which illustrate our current relationship with the natural world."
