Lotus by Daniel Borup

I teach anatomy - and what can I say other than - Daniel Borup knows anatomy and combines his knowledge with thousands of hours of practicing sculpture.
He describes his work like this:  "This woman is in a storm, yet she faces the storm accepting and embracing whatever difficulties come her way. She is strong in the winds of the storm. I named the sculpture Lotus because the Lotus flower is a symbol of purity, rebirth, and divinity. It is born out of muck and mud but blooms clean and pure with the coming of each day. It is a reminder that our challenges make us stronger."

Challenge to all my students (past and present) - name all the bones and muscles he sculpts.
