Umbilical

Whilst adding layers i began to note a repetitive pattern of knots that began forming within my sculpture. I began to notice a similarities between the knots and the aesthetic of an umbilical cord. The overall sculpture illuminates the idea of life so felt that this aesthetic fitted well and began to incorporate it in each new layer i added.

The natural crease that lies within tights added to the purity and innocence of the piece possibly even the element of birth. I began to see these creases in relation to the idea of stretched vaginal walls and birth canals. These are all elements that i will like to include in my final piece, therefore i will consider adding some unstuffed tights to heighten the idea of skin stretching to form and allow new life to enter.
