This intricate sculpture combines various elements to build an introspective tableau vivant. The skeleton is carved from a single piece of Siberian jet(a semi-precious fossil stone in the carbon family) as are the two hemispheres of the human brain. The brain halves were acurately carved by using a cast medical model for reference. The base floor is a slab of Thuli wood, found only in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco. The anvil and blacksmithing tools are milled from solid Damascus steel, with 23 karat gold accents. A small sword forged from the same steel, with bullet casing handle and an antique skeleton key lie loose on the floor. A natural pyrite ball(hi-grade iron ore) sits waiting to be smelted on it's jet base while a crucifix of bullet casings looms over the scene. One .50 caliber machine gun shell with a turquoise bullet stands besides a smaller shell with fossil coral tip and one more lapis bullet sits next to that .45 automatic shell, caps are inlayed into the brain and the base(for decroative effect only) and finally a pure silver casing of a Liberty one ounce coin is affixed Right In The Middle of it all.
