    Man is man wherever you find him takes its title from a 1971 National Geographic article by Thor Heyerdahl about his historical Atlantic voyage. Lorenz's sculpture, with its rice straw hull and wooden mast, is an interpretation of Heyerdahl's boat, the Ra II, and serves as a metaphor for navigation of cultural and physical geographies.
