This was a challenging project working with scientists and being able to create an interpretation of a fascinating subject.
I worked with Ronald Jenner, the venom specialist at the museum, to tell the story of the struggle between Egyptian Cobra and Egyptian Mongoose.
I took inspiration from a 1901 illustration based on Mr Kipling’s Story – Rikki-tikki-tavi.
Here is a visual I created to show how the piece would look in the space.
I made a miniature of the piece and then had the sculpture created as a 3D file which was then
CNC’d from a model makers light foam to create the 1.5m tall sculpture.
My team and I painted the sculpture and made stencils from string to create the snake’s scales.
The exhibition is on until May 2018.
