2006 – Hideous Creature

The Great Auk was a magnificent flightless bird that was murdered to extinction for its’ feathers and fat. The account of Auk harvesting I stuck to the back of this piece is especially chilling.
The hideous creature in the title is not this bird. It is man that hunted them.

circa 19 x 21 x 5 cm.
Assemblage of wood, glass, feathers, bones, polymer clay and acrylics.
