Food #6, Pistols
walnut, gold leaf, swarovski crystal, brass in velvet and walnut case
20 x 15 x 3.75 inches including case
The box and set of dueling-pistols/cow-jawbones in Food #6:Pistols are a response to industrial agriculture, the politics of food, and the relationship between humans and animals that we breed and keep for food. They are hand carved from walnut and finished with techniques borrowed from gunsmiths and luthiers, then inset with gold leaf and bio-accumulative growths of crystal.
