The pieces in this 2009 art series, appropriately titled “Handheld,” look like they're made from human skin and hair. But in reality, they're modeled from materials like silicone, with textures and colors based on the artist's own hands. The photographed result becomes a creepy fusion of art and artist.

The series of dollhouse-sized models is just one of many macabre creations from Harrison, whose other works include a self-portrait from teeth and bones, and a collection of vintage-style porcelain figurines depicted in various states of graphic self-mutilation.
