    i think its supposed to be about stem cell research (controversy).. based on the rat with the ear growing on its back.
    the sculptures are supposed to be portraying how atrocious mixing the dna of animals and humans is.

    i guess those all belong to patricia piccinini. i love her work. but there`s some stupid internet people who claims "whoa! god turned this woman into a rat/dog/pig because she was a sinner!" by showing one of her sculptures too

    anyway i think i learned about her work from iab, years ago. a week ago i was talking about something and i needed to show her sculptures to a friend and suddenly iab remembered her too. god, i love this site xD

    i think its supposed to be about stem cell research (controversy).. based on the rat with the ear growing on its back.
    the sculptures are supposed to be portraying how atrocious mixing the dna of animals and humans is"

    a) It was a mouse.
    b) The ear was not growing on it`s back, an artificial mesh shaped like an ear was implanted in it`s back for the cells to grow on.
    c) These were not really stem cells, although i think the mouse cells might have been modified to express human membrane proteins to combat immune system rejection. A "Knock-in" mouse. "Mixing" human and mouse DNA is a bit of an emotive description, but I guess that technically this is correct.
