This is wonderful work. I look forward to seeing more examples.
Thanks very much Tom, more examples to come soon.
Ryan -- looks like a quilt corpse. Evokes the image of old women sitting around this big corpse, making it somehow into a quilt. If old women could make the man of their dreams quilt-style it couldn't live. It'd be a quilt corpse.
Interestingly enough Bill, after I made the stuffed figure I was looking through art history slides and found Katharina Detzel with self-made figure, 1914. She was institutionalized in Germany for schizophrenia. Apparently she did exactly that, quilted the man of her dreams. Here is a link to her image:http://animulavagula.hautetfort.com/images/medium_Katharina_Detzel.2.jpg
