Mandrake root

This cute little guy is made by Alisha Dulaney. This piece inspires me because it is anthropomorphizing an object in a playful manner.  Mandrake root are in traditional folklore is thought to be something alive, because it looks humanoid already. However it does not usually have two heads, so by doing a grumpy and happy head on the same root it is playing off of the traditional lore. I like the shape of the object overall and how she employed twists and curls and balanced asymmetry to bring the figure together as a whole.
