Sculpted in 1924 by taxidermist and gorilla advocate Carl Akeley, “Chrysalis” represents his belief in the humanity of the apes.
Portland artist Kate Macdowell hand-sculpts these porcelain figures where humanity and nature collide to create intricate and beautiful new forms that have been dissected to expose the bizarre and intricate details, such as human skeletons inside animals and collisions of human organs with nature and insects.

Strange clay and porcelain sculptures by Israeli artist Ronit Baranga.
“The use of fingers and mouths in my work is full of intent and meaning. The fingers and the mouth are very sensual organs in the human body and are therefore very powerful as separated items from it. The ‘seamless’ combination of these organs in plates or cups, appearing as one, creates, in my opinion, new items that “feel” their environment and respond to it.” – Ronit
