Marc Quinn (Scolacium Archaeological Park) picture
Overview:

Quinn's ‘Totem’ was inspired by the mysterious Moai (statues) of Easter Island and the Sphinx in Gizah.

The production process for the sculpture involved water-jet cutting the head in slices of expanded polystyrene using digital scan information. Once the slices were mounted in the correct order, a silicon mould, reinforced by a metal structure, was produced. The mould was filled with cement mixed with pebbles to produce the final rough texture of the cast.
