This clay sculpture represents me and my family. The sculpture is based on an alien called the xenomorph, basically the xenomorph will do anything for its queen and its whole hive which is its family to insure that they will stay safe from any threats. They also will try to impress the queen so that they can get a higher role for more honor. I will do anything for my family and I always want to make my parents proud of me. I really respect my parents because they are always working hard every day for me and my siblings. In the sculpture the alien is keeping guard of the eggs so that they don’t get tampered or harmed. The night represents the danger of of being outside during the night because of gangs, 3 people have died on the street that live in and one of them died in front of my drive way and I saw what happened. The trees in the back represent how my family started. We started having nothing, no home or food we had to live in a homeless shelter for a year i think. Then my parents found a job and were able to afford an apartment and food for the family. After that my parents were able to afford a house of their own and also were able to afford food and more stuff than before. Now I’m In high school getting my education to go to college and hopefully get a great job.
