About This Project

Shriveled and curled up on the ground, anxiously squeezing his rock, this old ancestor of ours Homo floresiensis, represents the roots of our fears of abandonment and loneliness imprinted in all of us. The deep and slow breathing of his robust body contrasts the very worried and restless grimace on his face, and the exposure of his vulnerability directly erases the deep discrepancy that the modern man feels that he has with his forgotten forefathers.This piece of work is actually 1:3 of the real size sculpted to the greatest detail with the mechanism that simulates the breathing that adds to the impression and enhances the deep universal topic of what means to be human.
