Marzipan Cesarean & ‘Friends’ (NSFW)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Apologies to those of you who may have already read about Helga’s astonishing work on Cakehead Loves Evil, it’s a given I remain incredibly excited she is taking part in The Edible Autopsy and will be creating our corpse. The images on this post featuring some of her previous work should give you an indication of how realistic this will look, especially the marzipan cesarean (above).

 

Helga began using marzipan as a material after seeing an image of Dame Barbara Cartland (below – yes that is made from MARZIPAN!) and felt compelled to create a sculpture of her. Because she looked so “artificially sugary” marzipan was chosen as a medium. Following this Helga really came into her own creating more anatomically correct sculptures including animal organs and rotting pig heads from the same medium.

I’ve leave you with a comment from Helga which will leave no doubt in anyone’s mind she is is absolutely perfect for our devilish endeavors.

“It seemed to prove that sweet material cannot only create ‘cute’ things. On the contrary – the bitter sweet side tempted me”
