Man in a Jar
The item for sale is an antique 19th Century glass french jar which contains a complete human antique Medical Skelton. The concept of this piece aims to depict how as humans we are all enclosed in our daily lives, we are all told what to do and when to do it. We are controlled by our wealth or lack of wealth, our jobs, politics and social elements that control our thinking and actions.
From this concept I created the “Man in a Jar” This item aims to show how we are controlled or encased even in death when we are buried. The Antique glass dome aims to reveal just how uncomfortable it can be and yet in its own curio and weird way the item is still very decorative and artistic from an abstract perspective.
Content in this sale: 19th Century wooden based handmade French glass dome – complete medical antique human skeleton, the skull excludes the mandible and has a huge hole in the side of the head which shows trauma.
