This was a wooden sculpture part of a display at RHS Wisley gardens. I have added the textured bg and shadow, and the gazing pupil.

As Colleen says, very well processed and it is, indeed, quite scary. A very effective image, Ivor.

Is it just me, or was it modeled on Sinead O'Connor?

For me, the pupil is unnecessary - the sculpture has a glazed-eye look to it, and the pupil detracts from it. I reckon the sculptor would have bored a hole if they'd wanted to.

However, isolating the piece from the background was a good move!

The sculpture is very disturbing - the contrast between the sensual breasts and the Belsen-victim head chews away at my mind. Distinct overtones of The Scream (and NDODS's lovely and terrible reworking, here.

A somewhat macabre sculpture which reminds me of the Scream Painting by Munch...
