Hi folks! here's the last sculpture I did for my 3D art class in college.

Thanks! it's the first time I gave a dual purpose to a sculpture, and I can't wait to try turning it on as mood lighting next time the girl & I get intimate!  Tongue

of course, without the skull, it wouldn't be very recognizable as an armless pig torso Wink
