This is a miniature sculpture I created about a month ago. I had been thinking about the board game Snakes and Ladders and how it is a metaphor for life in that the snakes bring you down but the ladders lift you up and help you to achieve your goals.
I am still pondering this concept but wanted to see if I could make a ladder from bone. I actually found it very difficult even though it is a simple design. Like the Antique Key bone carving it is hard to maintain straight lines and sharp corners through out the process.
