I made Left Leg necklace wrapping myself. This thread bundle serves as inner core to make the necklace.

Every Purpose has a story. Here's Left Leg's.

"I am a piece of meat.
The skin line is lost and a new one appears. I am fascinated by the forms. They are primitive. I am not a person but a piece of flesh with feelings. 
It is so easy to discover another body and to be aware of the skin, of your own flesh, just by the act of wrapping yourself in simple thread.
The thought of stress comes. This act starts to represent our own sabotages and self destructions. We sometimes wrap ourselves in them. We even get hang up in them, like in the wrapping. And do not notice until they are too many, too tight, painful. We then get surprised of being so tangled. As inside this physical bundle, it is possible to pull hard to free oneself, but far better to radically cut through it.
After releasing myself from the stress I am only partially relieved. I feel free, the pain is gone. But I also miss those beautiful shapes. I have certain melancholy for the body I do not see any more."
