destruction of scale model fetuses

ft-1due to space constraints i had to part with my clay model fetuses.  i considered giving them away.  but because they were unfired clay pieces, they would break at the touch of a finger and over time would certainly fall apart.  after spending 100+ hours creating them, i thought that instead of just chucking the board in the dumpster, i would archive its destruction with a series of photographs.  soon all the work of sculpting, molding, and intricate detail lay clustered in scattered heaps of broken parts.
