About the artwork:
"Sword explores the relationship between the natural world and the humans and animals that inhabit it. The 'sword' highlights the tension between them. The colors were inspired by the colors of the leaves in autumn, when this work was created. After assembling a collage of X-ray fragments, I photographed it on a light box and added color digitally."
