This is a plastic and polymer clay sculpture that was originally meant to be the protoype of a resin model kit but lack of funds ended the project. I then assembled and finished the components into the result you see here. The embryo is about four inches tall and the cylinder measures about 13 inches when sealed. I eventually found a use for it as a cover illustration for a local SF anthology magazine.

Frozen Alien Embryo
Adrian Kleinbergen brings us this alien embryo in a cryotube. It features a functioning closure mechanism and rotating mount for the embryo inside the tube. Quite a nice piece of work.
