Figure of a lamb, encrusted with sugar-crystals grown on the surface of the stoneware body in a large metal tank.  The body of the lamb is illuminated within, the light emitting from over 1000 holes piercing the flesh of the figure and diffused by the depth of crystalline growth. Semi-precious stones and vintage led glass crystal cascade from the body, and are collected in a sacrificial glass chalice on the floor.
