Presenting a curiously disturbing biology experiment with infamous sculptures like the Venus de Milo or the Statue of David as the subjects by Cao Hui. The project allows for the deconstruction of their shell exposing the blood red flesh inside.  As if a mad scientist sharpened his blade, carefully dicing up the head into chunks on the floor, casting a wicked grin as a twisted rush fills his nostrils, the metallic aroma of guts delighting him orgasmically. The beauty in their shamelessly nude bodies, pure stone carved out perfect bosoms, strong shoulders, confident gaze into the distance…and we shiver at their fate, sliced like a perfect feast, clear through the bone.

Allison

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
