Great work!.  It was worth standing back and getting some other views of the piece, now it is complete.

If you were ever inclined to make this a kinetic piece,  I found this last Halloween:

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Attach it to the stuff coming out of the right leg. The prop is too long for your sculpture as is, but it should be easy enough to hide the excess in the hollow of the torso's shell, if you can't cut it down altogether.

Additionally,

Really nice piece, and once again, I'm envious.

Thanks for the positive replies so far.

OK, the possible pecker issue.........Hmmmmm??....... might have to address that, can't have a chick with a d&%@ hanging on my wall, so will think of a solution when time allows.

Love the dangly, moving live wires btw GCCC, not for this but maybe a future project, good find!

Very nice indeed.

Would it make sense to mount it all on a nice piece of wood?  Dark mahogany for example.

My concern with removing the nozzle completely is that the original silver patina is irretrievable. If that is accurate, then you're left with an oddly damaged navel, which again will draw attention to itself. If the nozzle can be removed and the area can be made to resemble the other "undamaged/uninfected" areas, then sure. Otherwise, consider adding an umbilical from the nozzle to elsewhere.

Very nice indeed.

Wouldn't that start to resemble a trophy mount? "Hey, y'all lookit whut I bagged on th' last 'rigible safari!" I'm sure you can construct a mount in such as fashion so that it wouldn't look like a trophy, but after thinking about this for a while, my personal thought is that this should be left "free hanging". It's an elegant piece which, to my eye, would not benefit from any other background than the wall from which it hangs. This would also take up less space, expanding the possibilities for where it might be hung.

I ran out of black tubing so a quick rummage in the van ans I found some braided.

That's it, no more, it's starting to get a bit too busy, so no plaque, It Is Finished.

How about, I know I know "shut up", but seriously, how about just rotating that 'non-member' to her right side and passing the hose thru the copper tubing?  It still may look alittle.....

And, please, mind you that this in anyway does NOT diminish your artistry! Smiley

Looks good.  wasn't sure about the belly button thing until I saw it hooked up to more parts.

I'd say there is something to having the machine cover her dignity, so to speak.  So keeping those parts "human" so to speak, while the mechanical bits attempt to retain modesty, is just the artsy thing people will talk about.

As such, I'm torn on whether the right arm should be borg'd or not as it covers the breast.

Absolutely terrific. My vote would be to keep it as is.

The machine wouldn't cover 'her' dignity because...it's a machine. So what's left of 'her' is still 'conscience' of what little is left of 'her'.

Nice to see this still being discussed.

I had always planned to keep that arm bare and free from anything.

Do please carry on, it is finished but extra opinions are most welcome.

Best use of junk mail I have ever used (with a bit of PVA, hammerite and boot polish)

On to the next, when time permits, Overall positive response methinks, cheers Ladies and Gents.

I don't know how to put this, so please take it in terms that are nothing but complimentary. At the moment it is a truly wonderful piece of art... and high end art at that. It feels to me like if you add too much more it may become a wonderful piece of model making (a pathway I am guilty of, not that it actually worries me) ...it's obviously up to you to figure out what this piece is to you, I'm 100% sure that it will be a success whatever you do.
Someone mentioned Giger, and I really think they were on the money. I definitely don't think it need any backing, the silhouette is perfect as is.
