Description

Love pondering upon the nature of our existence? Have a fetus soap to meditate those deeper questions through the routine of daily cleansing.

As a sculptor, I believe in making art that allows us to think about deep conceptual ideas on an accessible daily level. Great ideas come to all of us without time and place restrictions. The reception of someone else's idea should be given as fluid and serendipitous considerations.

The embedded fetus is made from goat's milk soap. The outer embryonic sac portion is made of melt and pour clear glycerin soap.

Each soap is created one at a time using a fetus mold made by yours truly. Casting mimics gestation and birthing with its long production process and patience in curing.

At 12 - 13 weeks, the fetus is averaged to be around 2.5 inches, which is the size of the fetus in this soap - we were all this size once.

An original was sculpted then a mold was made out of silicone. The excess pour spouts and other mold-making demarcations have carefully been removed so that each soap is like a scientific specimen.

I am a soap maker as well as a sculptor, 3D modeler, and illustrator interested in explorations of the anomaly, the surreal, and the grotesque. I believe in living art, breathing art and most of all, the ability to hold art in our hands in the comfort of whatever environment is preferred. My soaps are oddities in that they allow people to evoke a response and challenge the status quo.

Since 2011, Lily, the New York-based founder of YoursInSoap has been personally producing quality handmade soaps which bridge the dynamic worlds of novelty and fine art with beauty and home life . Its trendy Fetus Soap has been featured in unique online gift guides (ThisIsWhyImBroke.com & DudeIWantThat.com) and it has been a mainstay on Reddit with over 1400 pieces existing in 48 states domestically and over 13 countries.

Soaps are wrapped in shrink wrap to prevent susceptibility to moisture and condensation. Also wrapped in pink tissue paper, and 4" x 4" 100% post-consumer-recycled white gift box with labeling, shipped inside a 5" x 5" corrugated box. Best used in 3 months.

All soaps are handmade one set at a time. Weight and color may vary slightly.

The soap is smaller than it appears on the photo. The soap is also flat on one side.

My wife loves this soap the only reason for not giving 5 stars is it took longer than expected to ship.
