HUMAN CODE Idol of Domestication

H19 x 5cm
Lost wax Casted Bronze, Black Onyx
Edition of 3 + 1AP

Idol of Domestication is a sculpture made of cast bronze with black onyx inserts: it metaphorically alludes to the process of genetic mutation of foods induced by humans, beginning in the Neolithic age and still in progress. The “corn idol” is the result of a domestication obtained by crossing various “teosintes” - forerunners of corn - to boost production capacity and to satisfy the nutritional needs of communities.
