This Taylor Baldwin 'The Interpreter' sculpture is probably what Captain Jack Sparrow would look like if he were stranded on a raft in the ocean for a long enough time. What's completely awe-inspiring about the piece, however, is how Baldwin perfectly emulates bones using only wood carvings and a bunch of other unexpected materials.

My favorite aspect about this Taylor Baldwin 'The Interpreter' sculpture has got to be the corpse's teeth, which have all been individually screwed into place. The paint splatters also arrest the viewer's attention, and Baldwin's hilarious inclusion of feces topped off with flies demonstrates the artist's attention to detail as well as his humor.

Implications - With modern conveniences giving consumers a surplus in expendable leisure time, many of them are turning to artistic endeavors to fill this time. Corporations looking to appeal to consumers may use fine-art imagery in advertising campaigns to satiate consumer demand for artwork.
