Mother's Little Helper

It's called "The Undivided" by Patricia Piccinini

The piece is made from silicone, fibreglass, human hair, teddy, bed and linen.

Here's a close up.

This is what the artist had to say about the work:

"Things are different today, I hear every mother say
Cooking fresh food for a husband's just a drag
So she buys an instant cake and she burns her frozen steak
And goes running for the shelter of a mother's little helper
And two help her on her way, get her through her busy day

Doctor please, some more of these
Outside the door, she took four more
What a drag it is getting old."

~Mother’s Little Helper, Mick
Jagger and Keith Richards, 1965
