I find fetuses very beautiful and fascinating. Especially because in early stages human fetuses and those of animals, such as chickens, are almost indistinguishable. I like to use them in art, because they are especially something that can not be visible in everyday life. They have something clandestine for me because of that. Also, they look for me wise in a way. Something that rests in all patience in its bubble and carries all life in itself. Quite unlike babies, which for me suddenly no longer seem wise. Probably it is because of the silence of the fetus. In this representation I found especially the tissue around the fetus exciting, because it reminds me of plastic, which is why I added an element from a surgery illustration, which is really plastic.
