Articulated Internal Skeleton

2012

Wooden dowels, epoxy, ball and socket joints, faucet aerator, and leather

Allowed a full range of motion with joints in the hips, knees, ankles, shoulders, and spine. Created for my pastel fox taxidermy mount Ilu. Anatomy isn't perfect, because sacrifices in the internal skeleton had to be made in order for the fox to be able to hold up his own weight and pose properly.
