Specimen #04002, 5/30/2001

Size: 9 by 10 inches, 1 inch thick

Composition: White cement (Winterstone), reinforcing mesh. Impressions made using house number "4" and "1" for the skull, a boning knife, screwdriver, screw eye, scalpel blade, electrical plug, crescent wrenches.

Collection site: Washington, DC

Comments: I used a different formulation of cement this time. It gives a different look, and it's more difficult to sculpt. The result has some superficial surface cracks that add a very appropriate texture to this piece.
