I'm just back from the studio where this a.m. I finished up these two pieces. You've seen their earlier iterations on the blog a week or so ago.
The detail below shows the interior gears (once aqua plastic but now rusted) and the red string manipulating the woman.
Here's the second piece, currently untitled (that part of my brain seems to be on vacation). It's a very simple composition, but it feels right to leave it this way.
