Chicken bones, adhesive.2 ft. x 1 ft. x 1ft.
Bones have always fascinated me as a relic, whether they be from an ancient preserved dinosaur skeleton or part of an articulated table scrap. The common chicken bone has been formed through millions of years of engineering through natural selection, with the design process literally paid for with the lives of billions of creatures. This assemblage elevates something treated as offal into a wearable object of unique delicacy.
