Hand-Headed Hound Sculptures
The Human Animal by Kelly Colligan is a Series of Flesh-Like Pets

By: Gil Haddi (Superstar) May 29, 13

In her latest series entitled ‘The Human Animal,’ artist Kelly Colligan amalgamates animals with human limbs as a way to emphasize the continuity within the animal kingdom.

The strange sculptures lounge around on a sofa, much like kittens or small puppies would, curling up near the legs, piling up on top of each other and just generally doing different animal-type things. What makes them catch the eye of animal-lovers is their fleshy coloring and hand-shaped heads.

On her site, Colligan explains, “as humans, we constantly long for a sense of connection” and investing in our pets, a sentiment that ‘The Human Animal’ series successfully captures through the use of combining petting hands with actual pets.
