On an artistic/technical level, it's every bit as good as the others pieces in your series, but, thematically, in my opinion, it doesn't fit with the four elements in the Western alchemic/mythic tradition. The idea with the four elements (and sometimes a fifth, aether) is that they are the basic building blocks from which everything else in the universe, including flesh, in made, thus, flesh wouldn't be an element itself but a combination of earth, air, water, and fire.

I am glad to a favorable assessment. Thanks. The purpose of addition of 5 elements of a flesh is simple. The factor of the person became very important in Earth existence. And besides..... The Lord created all elements and a flesh human too. We part of this world. Perhaps, our consciousness (or soul) this any fluctuation of air...
I am the admirer of judgment not only life, but also painting, and a papier-mache. I welcome semantic loading of works of art.
As though to us to organize thematic creation of works on a site? The subject, term of publication of the photo is set. I think it will be interesting!
I was interested by the dwelling (nest) of a wasp. Honeycombs are made of a papier-mache. Perhaps, also we will create sculptures on the subject "Wasp"? 3 months for competitive preparation are enough....
