Slicing up Dolls.

My little sister goes to school at the UofM and she is currently minoring in art... Currently she is taking a general art class and I've been assisting with her current project. The project involves picking an object, she chose a doll, and creating 3 different pieces using any medium that fit 3 pre-chosen topics. So, essentially, she did photography of sculptures she made. Anyways, here of some weird photos of her working on the project the other night...

I didn't get any shots of my favorite one she made... It was essentially a Barbie torso with many arms in each leg hole and a different baby's legs in the arm holes and a much larger baby's head. It was/is slightly creepy...
