Raven Armoury – Empathy
Master metal-crafter Simon Fearnhamm of Raven Armoury has created this unique (one-off) EyePod art piece. The life-size bronze skeleton took over a year to create. Named ‘Empathy’ for the MP3 to which he listens, he’s sitting cross legged, listening to his ‘eyepod’ and smoking a cigarette.
His eye is synthetic, made in silicon by a top prosthetics expert; his other eye is acrylic and inset in the sterling-silver-and-ebony ‘eyepod’ itself – which is looking back at him. His headphones are steel, copper and leather; the cigarette is mammoth ivory with wire wool for tobacco.
