Abigail Liebhart, Got Milk?, 2018, Chicken wire and thread.
Mother milking machine.
This sculpture is commentary on the dairy industry and dairy cows used for mass produced milk have been used, abused, and left barren. The cycle of birth and milking is nearly endless, until, of course, they are turned into beef.
This project was a leap of faith, as I had very little experience with large scale sculpting in early 2018. Although I had never worked with the mediums before, there was an idea in my head that I was determined to bring to life. This three dimensional sculpture is approximately 3.5ft tall and 2ft wide.
