|Man Moon-Go, ©1989, 4-3/4 x 3 x 3/4 inches, Brass, watch parts, silver, plexiglass. In Marie-Louise von Franz's book, "On Dreams & Death" I found this quote: "Many people make a doll to serve as a substitute for the corpse. The Chinese made one from a loincloth and called them Moon-Go." There is a blog post about this book here. Sold. Scroll down for a detail shot.
|A detail of the book in his chest. His hand holds the book shut, there are watch parts and a watch face as pages. The patina is a heat treatment. It's basically what's left after soldering, with the flux removed. The arms pivot on rivets, the toes and legs dangle on jump rings.
