Put some “teeth” into it…

Fantich & Young, London based artist duo Mariana Fantich and Dominic Young, created a series of conceptual sculptures – “Apex Predator“,  set to address parallels between social evolution and evolution in the natural world. The original Apex Predator—described as predators with no predators of their own, residing at the top of the food chain.
