vax sculpture, life size 2005
installation view at Ystad konstmuseum 2006

Sculpture made from the mould of a head; a free interpretation of Marias face in the Michelangelo sculpture PietĂ . The negative shape creates an optical illusion of a three dimensional face, with eyes that seem to follow the viewer around the room. The light that seeps trough the thinner parts of the mould reinforces the impression of light on a face, framed by a veil of wax.
