Naglfar

Fingernails, toenails, and glue 5” x 3.5” x 2.5” / 2000

Inspired by the Nordic Legend in which, if the fingernails and toenails of the dead are not trimmed upon burial, the minions of Hel (hell) will use the nails to construct a death ship, Naglfar, that will eventually sail the hordes to battle the gods. This ship is made from the artist’s fingernails and toenails.
