monika horcicova 3D prints the wheel of life skeletal sculpture
made from 3D printed pieces, ‘the wheel of life’ by czechdesigner monika horcicova is a skeletal sculpture that is based on a symbol of infinity. the round structure refers to the repeated cycle of conception and death, with walking legs used to evoke the image of people in motion. the idea explores the fragility of human bones, which despite this are able to carry the weight of the whole human figure during its life. the plaster composite pieces were 3D printed and then placed in a form and casted in a polyurethane resin, the individual pieces were then assembled into a single object.
