Mother-in-Law, Release 1, #35 – Stairway to Heaven


One-off unique and original digital art work, created entirely by hand by artist George Burchett.

Supplied in 3D and 2D versions, suitable for augmented reality, display on screen and printing.

The 3D version can be displayed using the Niyos AR augmented reality viewer, downloadable from the Apple App Store for iPhone and iPad.

Exclusive ownership of the art work is being sold, exactly the same as if purchasing a painting or sculpture. As with physical art, copyright and moral rights remain with the artist.


As a unique, one-off hybrid art work, collecting this piece means you own multiple forms of the same original art work.

One of those forms is a 3D color-printed original, approximately 19 inches / 48cm high, delivered in a premium presentation box, with a custom-cut EVA insert, signed and certified as a 1-of-1 original by the artist. The physical sculpture is signed by the artist, dated, numbered as a 1-of-1 and has its unique release and serial number embedded in the base of its feet.

The 3D printed Mother-in-Law is ideal for display as a sculpture in your home, office or gallery. The 3D printing material is PLA (a high-strength, almost carbon-neutral, eco-friendly bioplastic, often used to make medical products), which is tough, very attractive in appearance and has good thermal resistance, making it suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. The joints are connected by stainless steel pins and can articulate, so you can position your own unique Mother-in-Law in many poses.

To produce each 3D print, the artist’s studio undertakes additional work, starting with the 3D digital version and adapting it for printing. Some elements, such as very thin lines and details, are sometimes adjusted and the original colors are mapped to the closest color filaments available for 3D printing. The result is a 3D physical twin to the 3D digital version, with the artist’s customized variations.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a work of art containing some small parts and should be kept out of reach of young children.
