kneed a heart... (thanks Pat!!!)

A small glimpse at a current work-in-progress.

I started working on this piece for Gary Reef's sardine can challenge. Then I realized my idea didn't fit the challenge rules. But I love my idea so much that I'm doing it anyways... just for me.
My piece will be called Real Boy. I will construct the body out of metal, pieced together like a quilt. The head I sculpted some time ago out of clay and various found objects. It resembles the Borg.

The heart will be embedded into the body, in a tin of some kind.

This will take some time but I'm in no rush.

I'll be interested in seeing the final product. How big will he be?
