Life size, two headed baby, floating in a cookie jar
Demon child by ~kidoho is a highly disturbing piece and horrifically realistic, it gives me the chills just to look at it, as though I have found an old specimen hidden away in some dark laboratory. Outstanding work that will certainly take the viwer outside of their comfort zone. (

There is a museum in St. Petersburg Russia that I went to that has preserved babies like this. I forget the name of the museum and who it was that preserved the deformaties, but this sculpture looks just like one of the ones there. They won't allow you to take photos so that is why I clicked on this. I thought someone had been let in with a camera and took some pictures of the babies. Nice work.
Well said. Though the unfortunate title isn't necessarily meant to depict the physical condition of the infant, but rather represents the context in which the sculpture was used. My apologies if you find this offensive.
I didn't actually find it offensive; I know that the title is meant to be read in context. It's just that the title made me think about my fear of physical deformities, and how it often prevents me of thinking about them in it's real, human dimension.
I somehow felt the need to call the attention about that subject. I myself apologize if my comment was heavy handed; I guess I really overthought the meaning of the sculpture.
a good kind of overwhelming. it's a freakin' awesome sculpture, glad it got recognized. how the heck are you? it's been so long since we've talked. life has been crazy here, my gf moved here and we moved into another apartment. it's taking awhile to get settled, and get adjusted to it all. but yeah, looking forward to getting to catch up with you.
Dude. Creepiest thing ever. How many people have you given nightmares to? Haha! Good job. This is insanely real looking, but it's also surreal. It seems like a demon child, honestly. It looks so good you almost have to believe it is real, but... it's so crazy wicked you don't want to believe it is real. Nice job!
