Beth Cavener Stichter and Alessandro Gallo Collaborate on Ornate Sculpture

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on February 24, 2014

Beth Cavener Stichter’s (Hi-Fructose Vol. 26 cover artist) sculptures have an intensely-visceral quality. The ceramic animals she hand-builds demonstrate an human-like sense of understanding with their sensitive gazes and anthropomorphic eyes. But despite their thoughtful countenances, these characters are also perfectly at home in their animal skins. Cavener Stichter’s work does not shy away from the brutality of the animal world, from its untamed sexuality to its endless cycle of predator and prey.

She recently collaborated with Italian artist Alessandro Gallo (previously featured in Hi-Fructose Vol. 24), who embellished her latest sculpture, Tangled Up in You, with painted tattoos reminiscent of traditional Japanese tattoo art. The 65-inch-tall sculpture (15 feet total, from the top knot of the rope to the floor) shows a lanky rabbit intertwined with a snake in mid-air. It is unclear whether the two figures are caught in a struggle to the death or a passionate embrace. Tangled Up in You is currently on view at the Milwaukee Museum of Art. Take a look at some detail shots of the elaborate piece as well as some photos of Cavener Stichter in her studio.

facts-i-just-made-up:

A live condom, before harvesting and processing.
Though the condom is functionally extinct in the wild, condom farms across the globe are going strong with an estimated larval population in the billions.
The typical condom will shed its skin 15 times through the larval stage, allowing for over a dozen sheaths to be collected before the condom is either allowed to mature as breeding stock or slaughtered for its meat which can be found in “Chicken” nuggets and Spam.
Shed skins undergo a process called “Encondomization” once harvested in which the reservoir tip is sewn on by hand, the condom is dipped in lubricants or spermicidal jelly if applicable, and then rolled up and packaged. The process dates back to Ancient Rome where condom farming began, specifically in buildings known as “Condominiums”. One such condominium is still cranking out the product, having been in continuous operation since approximately 160 B.C.
You can still find it at 00186 Piazza di Montecitorio, Rome, Italy. Cicero’s International House of Condoms now features a museum on the history of the condom and is open to the public. FIJMU followers can get a discount, just ask for Enrico.

facts-i-just-made-up:

Spontaneous Mutation:
A snake that grew bored with its life on the ground sprouted wings. This happens to about 1 in 500 snakes. Only about 1 in 3,000 of those will actually be able to fly.
Herpetologists are still unable to explain the willed generation of wings which can resemble bird wings, moth wings or even buffalo wings. The growth seems to be psychologically motivated and never happens to snakes ranking under a 17 on the Harrison Serpentine Depression Scale. The more dejected a snake becomes with its ground life though, the more likely it is to grow wings and fly away.
Snakes capable of flight often move quickly to a 1 or 2 on the HSDS and are considered the happiest snakes in the world (Excluding of course the Reticulated Norwegian Chocolate Guzzler). Flying snakes aren’t an entirely positive thing however, as airborne ophidians depart not only the surface but their proper place on the food chain. Most become drunk with power and begin eating birds and larger mammals. History records 14 human deaths in 2012 from anacondas in flight.
This is only half as many people as have died of nausea when “Anacondas” turned out to be their in-flight movie however, a disaster of cinema that lead to the ban on snakes on planes referenced by Samuel L. Jackson in his famous action film, “The Negotiator”.

wow i learned so much from this post, thank you

Ok, snake people and herpetologists near Spokane WA, this snake here is in a bit of a dilemma. Apparently, some asshole abandoned or released this 11 foot albino reticulated python, which was then discovered in an apartment, underweight and with burns on it from trying to wrap around a heater to escape from the cold.
The city has nowhere to put this animal, the owner isn’t likely to come get her, and unless someone steps up she’s going to be euthanized after the time window has passed.
I’d imagine a snake of this size and color must be worth something to SOMEbody out there, and she seems to be pretty tame, as the article didn’t mention her lashing out at any of the people trying to rescue her during this ordeal. So, snake owners, herpetologists, breeders, collectors, anyone out there with room for her, would you give this poor thing a chance?

Signal boosting.  Would they ship to TX?  Lol. 

Guys, please signal boost. Everyone does it for dogs and cats, but our reptile friends deserve a chance too.

aaagh poor baby ;_;
signal boost, i really hope someone can take her and give her an actual home

SOMEBODY TAKE THE SNAKE

Oh my god she’s so skinny.  D:
I really hope someone will step up to get her!  She’s GORGEOUS.
