Shouldn't the baby be an x-ray too (skeleton)?

And what is with the solid bone boobs & eyes? ;)

I agree. The pic is not horrific for me neither, instead shows the relationship from a unique perspective. awesome piece.

most interesting for me reading your comments is that many of you mention the impression of horror atmosphere. interesting because the initial plan was to create a more or less scientific picture. very down to earth and in an early stage i worried that this might become a boring piece. so the concept changed to an emotional setting. in my eyes the human body - even x-rayed - is a fascinating archetype with unique aesthetics. thats also the reason why i wanted a positive aura, but maybe i am only a weirdo in these things.

ok, the result for sure is grotesque and i understand that most people find it horrific or even repulsive.

this is what i see in the picture: love and confidence not depended on physical attractions. the guy surprises her with breakfast and enjoys that she is really pleased. in a sense the baby should be the star for a growing family, but this time it's the relationship between the parents.

thank you all for your comments. the pic was an experiment a with bodyworlds-style shapes and the composition more like an evolutionary thing. and finally ... i agree that the fruit on the table is the best part ;-)

@Jammer: yes, Cezanne come to my mind immediately during the compo aswell. I guess it's a pretty obvious reference since even I got it :)

Aren't we a bunch of ugly cunts without skin? It's the skin that makes us! Very bizarre - Veto wins me over again with his wild, canvas like work. ...the beauty *is* the child.

@Fatfrost: Noorks? I thought those were Meringues with cherries on top! ;)

Artist/Technically amazing, but i'm not sure about the theme being my cup of tea and it induces a deathly theme a little. hmmm.... nice noorks though!
