Incredible Living Sculptures– Robert Cannon

These are fascinating sculptures done by Robert Cannon . He calls the work Terraform Sculpture. TERRAFORM (literally, “Earth-shaping”) the process of deliberate modification of the atmosphere, temperature, surface topography or ecology to be similar to those of Earth to make it habitable by humans. While in Robert’s case, he uses concrete and mosses with most of his creations.

Smugglerius and Galata Morente (The Dying Galatian). 

The original cast was made in 1776 under the direction of the anatomist, William Hunter. Hunter was so impressed by the musculature of a man who was hanged at Tyburn that, rather than dissect the man, as he had intended, he decided to preserve the body, placing it in a pose based on the classical form of the Dying Gaul. A bronze cast of the man was made and was used for teaching purposes at the Royal Academy in London. Using mock Latin, students of the Royal Academy nicknamed the cast ‘Smuggler us’, likening the flayed man to the grander classical statues seen alongside him, whilst  acknowledging his criminal status as a smuggler or thief.
