Airbags - Ethnographic Series #4

click to enlarge

My newest drawing was inspired by a sepiacolored picture, shot in the early 20th century by famous photographer Edward S. Curtis, showing a native indian whalehunter. Apart from any romanticism I was especially fascinated by this grotesque looking detail of primitve (and surely Freudian) airbags.

A colored version of this image will be part of Claudias „Maybe“- postcardproject.
