Piranha Plant and Vincent by Kalapusa Piranha Plant and Vincent by Kalapusa
My Piranha Plant Revisited sculpture with my dog, Vincent, standing guard.

In creating it, I based my design on this question: Had it been based on a real living plant, what would it look like?

I used clay, a strengthened wire skeleton and a special mix of acrylics to get the right appearance of flesh (particularly the inside of the mouth).

Piranha Plant and Vincent by ~Kalapusa is a crazy and amazing sculpture that replicates the fantasy bad-assery into reality! ( Suggested by Baz135 and Featured by aunjuli )

I love the little mushrooms inside of it! :) And if I were Mario, I'd be scared to see this!
Also, what kind of dog is it? It's cute!
