Ok so as you can clearly see this thing is “a diamond in the rough.” I have to cut and tape the kink in the hose at the second spiral, and gradually I will start peeling away more and more tinfoil as I straighten out the hose and make it more balanced and symmetrical and less lopsided. It needs to be painted, it needs sanding, and it needs the rubber snakes I have to be tastefully attached/inserted into the hose up top. This thing is a project. M should be commended for even getting this far with it. As we agreed this morning, you can tell the caduceus is an object that is more fit to be drawn, existing in two dimensional space, rather than to exist in our reality in three dimensional space. But I’m really in love with this thing and I’m willing to make it beautiful.
Perhaps I’ll post some progress pictures to come.
