Marc Quinn (Scolacium Archaeological Park) picture

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.
