scale model fetuses

 

fetus-1_bigthese pieces are scale models of fetuses at 2.5, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12, 16, 20, 26, 32, and 38 weeks. in the larger models, only half the fetus is represented and the viewer is left to imagine the mirror half. this is partly because i wanted nice flat backs for wall mounting, and partly because in the third trimester fetuses i had trouble creating whole babies that were not deformed. before doing anything like this again, i think a sculpting class is in order. this was a project for the Embryology and Fetal Development module of my National Midwifery Institute studies.
