Inspired by Rodin's works in which he evoked the damages sculptures of antiquity, the fractured figure is a modern interpretation of a traditionally realist art form.  With its bare suggestion of the head, arms and torso, these works express the haunting fragility of the human experience.  The partial figure, purposefully lest as incomplete, conveys that basic human life experience to feel not whole.  A Japanese "crackle" finish or surface textures with its voids and opening that reveal peet moss and burlap fibers, further evokes the themes of vulnerability as the work's "imperfections" are exposed for all the world to see.
