This is the position in which my figure will be placed. This represents the body position in which many decayed bodies are dug up. I have decided to illustrate this by using a thin stroke line, keeping the detail to a minimum.
I have inverted the stroked figure out of the black square. The black square representing the ground it was discovered from.
The idea of using three squares is to show the different stages of discovering the body. The first square represents grass, the second soil and then the last one is the body in the ground. Each box has a rough edge, making it relate more to archeology.
Instead of having the three squares next to one another i have decided on having them stacked on top of one another. This re enforces the idea of digging through each stage of the ground and then discovering the body.
