Nail Heart

Subject:Abstract, Other
Description

Carved wooden sculpture greatly indebted to and influenced by the minkisi artefacts of Africa. Many of these ritualistic objects are carved wooden totems that have had nails and other metal items hammered into them. However, whereas the minkisi derive their power from their contents, with ‘Mutant Nail Heart’ I was trying to create something that had a powerful presence derived purely from its adornment of carefully selected nails, screws and other various metal implements.
