HUID (Skin) was the inspiration theme and the name of a group exposition from the Association of Artists in Wageningen, The Netherlands. In this exhibition, the artists were asked to shed light on the theme based on their own medium. Petra thought of skin as seen through a huge magnifying glass. She combined this idea with the language we use to express different types of skin.
The skin of this sculpture is based on the structure of parched soil. The color of the hair refers to the lack of pigment in the hair of children/people who suffer from strong malnutrition.
The size is 37 x 18 x 9 cm.
