Still deciding on my feelings for how this photo came out… But it immediately made me think of scottbaiowulf so at the very least I’ll post it here.
This is from the Detroit Institute of Art’s contemporary section. Here’s the placard:
"Variability of Similar Forms", 1970
Steel, wax, marble, dust, acrylic, wood
As the title suggests, these thirty-six replicas of camel leg bones are similar, but not identical. Graves had a long-standing fascination with camels, describing them as “wonderful to watch.” Here she arranges their leg bones like trees, suggesting a petrified forest or an archaeological site.
