What is it about the human body that is so fascinating? Especially a body that has been worked, a body that has lived? Skin pulls across muscle and sinew, wrinkles criss-cross a face, bones and bumps and scars form mountains and valleys. It tells a story, a story of a lifetime. Perhaps a lifetime well lived? Perhaps a lifetime in which the body has been put to full use as the great tool that it is?

This art piece / drawing is currently on display at Arebbusch Travel Lodge.
