Buffalump - animal metamorphosis sculpture - Karina Kalvaitis

Buffalump

Metamorphosis (Buffalump) – Litter of 5

I tend to use animal hybrids to depict and explore states of mind. Metamorphosis explores that in-between time when internal changes are happening though outwardly there is little movement. Consider a cocoon or a plant bulb, the end results of the changes within are life-altering and unstoppable. Some life changes can feel like this, we feel a sense of dormancy, even as everything is changing and re-arranging within.

This sculpture was inspired by my drawing of the same name.

Each approximately 8.5″ long, 6″ wide and 5″ tall. Weight about 400 grams. Edition of 5.
