American artist Helen Altman lives and works in fort Worth, Texas where she creates artwork by altering commonplace material such as these skulls, made from different spices. These life size skulls are moulded from different natural materials, including bamboo, mustard seeds and mung beans. The materials are glued together and sculpted into a human skull form and hung from a wall. The series explores notions of reality versus artificiality in everyday life and the boundary between authenticity and absurdity.
