Sus domesticus Reconstructed explores the complex relationship between people and animals, as sustenance and sentient beings. The sculpture serves as a shrine; immortalizing the spirit of the animal killed; the living being that once was.  Flesh is mounted to an unyielding, metal crate, similar to the ones used in current factory farm practices, while a patch of grass symbolizing a free flowing pasture, the ideal situation, is planted below.
