This is my final 3rd year project, completed between February and May 2009. The idea was sparked off from the Animals in the Womb television series. I went to view these and talked to the artists who created them at Artem, which gave me the idea of displaying the faun in a back-lit womb.

 

The faun was sculpted in clay on a plaster and metal armature and then moulded in fibreglass. I then created a foam core inside to make the cast lighter and save on silicone. The silicone was poured around the foam, and I finished it with hair punching on the head, flocked ears and fur replacement on the legs using real rabbit fur.
