My newest project is a religious doll, Tug Christ. Its based on a midieval Jesus sculpture from northern europe. They hammered in a whole bunch of nails into the life-size figure and then covered it with drops of blood. Recently scientists determined that the blood was real human blood. I'm not sure why it's called Tug Christ but it may have something to do with the way this blood was either collected or applied to the sculpture. It's a wooden sculpture and it was not destroyed in the Iconoclastic Riots. The doll version is not made out of wood but it is nailed full of metal and it's supposed to have real blood on it. Unfortunately I'm really scared of blood and needles and such, so I'm thinking I should just use nail polish or possibly blood from my cat. Or maybe no blood at all. I can't decide. I was commissioned to make it and I think maybe the customers will have to supply their own blood. That might even make it more meaningful. It's stuffed with insulation. When I stuffed it my hands became itchy. I still have rashes all over the back of my hands.
