Homunculus
Homunculus For Future Upcoming Show
(acrylic on panel 8X10)

The Homunculus is a small man made pseudo human being that acts as a servant to its creator. The alchemist Paracelsus was the first to make claims in the creation of this creature. To make a Homunculus you would gather hair, bones, sperm, and skin, place it in the ground surrounded by horse dung and in thirty to forty days a homunculus would form. The homunculus would have to be treated right, if not it could turn on its master and run away. For this fantasy illustration I used a dark color scheme to set the mood of a freshly emerged homunculus.
