Here's a project long over due for a blog presentation. I completed this sculpture this time last year. The concept is simple: Jesus Christ, covered in gold and wrapped in fur, begins to decay and even rot from his once glorified self. The piece has no real titled, however I do feel that I, myself as an aging man, have also fallen from my 'glorified' youth and beauty, and am beginning to decay, hence the sub-title 'His name is my name...'.

I was recently on appletrailers.com, when I came across an interesting film trailer for a documentary called "Until the Light Takes Us". This film tells the history of Black Norwegian Metal, the people and sub-culture behind the music and it's ideals/'philosophies'. This is interesting because I based an Illustration project on this subject, called "True Norwegian Black Metal (Varg Vikernes and Gaahl)". I'm very excited to see this film and how accurate I portrayed this phenomena.
