Sculpture Linda Cordell creates a morbid porcelaine vignette figure of Abraham Lincoln with flesh hanging from his shoulders as an eager rat approaches.

“Socially awkward and full of repressed anger, I anesthetize myself spending mindless hours carving detailed texture on humorous and/or uncomfortable animal sculptures. A child of the revisionist era, my work reinterprets the figurine enabling animals to break the chains of cuteness and noble savagery. An appreciation of the ridiculous, a love of beauty and skilled craftsmanship, and the belief that domestic objects are social propaganda all contribute to my work.”
