My artwork focuses on the skeletal system, mainly bones strength. This was inspired after we had compared the relationship between skeletal muscles and bones being similar to levers in earlier units. The skull I painted was supposed to show the strength that both bones and metal have. Protection and movement are two of the seven functions of the skeletal system that require the bone to be strong and durable. The actual work shows a metal skull on a workbench with tools to the left and wire on the right. On the skull, where the metal plates meet is also where the different areas of the skull are (zygomatic, nasal, etc) where the wires have an organic quality to them even if they are man made.
