"Tinker Toys" by John E Fortune, MD, is a sculpture of a synthetic
femur with multiple simulated fractures, reconstructed using
external fixation frames made from five different materials:
stainless steel, titanium, carbon fiber, aluminum, and tinker toys.
Dr Fortune is Assistant Chief of Orthopaedic Surgery at the Santa
Teresa Medical Center in San Jose, CA. His various creative outlets
include photography and building three-dimensional "fixation
construct" models using surplus (used) orthopaedic implants. His work has
