    12' x 7' x 7'

    Mimicking the stone pedestals and bronze figures found in city parks and plazas, this sculpture appears to follow a classical canon. The figure, however, is made of fabric coated with Paverpol and placed on a wooden pedestal. Regardless of the vantage point, it displays only a continuous rear view. This humorous play in construction is intended to address sentiments that are attached to traditional monuments and statues -- heroism, nationalism and also historical revision.
