Spare Parts
By: Allen Ashley

Rodin kept drawers full of hands,
heads, feet and other body
parts to work with and re-use
in his sculptures.
Called them "Abattis";
"Giblets" in English.
Pragmatic, detached, never
lost a night of sleep worrying
about animate Hammer horror
human appendages creeping loose, strangling
him as he slumbered.

Inspired by the exhibition "The Making of Rodin" held at Tate Modern, London, UK from 18 May to 21 November 2021
