The frame on this 36x48 inch piece (not shown) is constructed of hardwood, animal bones (road kills, farm kills, and butcher leavings), doll parts, and surgical steel medical instruments. The grip points are placed specifically so that when a person picks up the piece, strain is felt through the lower abdominal area.
He hangs with a little book that tells the story of how I came to paint him.

While common to the tidal flats of the Olympic Peninsula and the northwest coast of the United States, the shy marshaloaf is rarely spied by human eyes. The marshaloaf typically moves at night or during weather conditions inhospitable to people. They feed on decaying matter in the sand and silt and reproduce through budding. In spite this asexual reproduction method, they are known to protect younger and smaller members of their kind, clustering together when sleeping to prevent the more fragile marshaloaves from washing out to sea or being crushed by logs.
Watch for them returning to their nest sites amidst the grass tufts early in the morning.
