Balsa Wood Man, Balsa Wood Man, doing the things that balsa wood can…
A little figure made from balsa wood. We were asked to make a small human model demonstrating our understanding of how a figure would appear based on eight-head high proportions. (Most people are actually less than eight heads tall but this was for convenience.)
To understand what I mean when I say “eight-heads tall”, observe how the height of the figure divides into eight equal portions, each the size of the figure’s head. Along those portions are particular landmarks, eg. the start of the torso.
Some of my classmates used modelling clays and one even made hers out of a bread and PVA mix.
Mine has rotating limbs!
