44" tall. Steel, found objects. 2009
Macabre tribute to "Day of the Dead". From within the jail-like ribcage peer out imprisoned faces. The anthropomorphic mule-headed figure has rabbit ears and a skull face. He holds a violin as an homage to the muse of music, Euterpe. The dead sunflower in his other hand symbolizes the seeds of re-birth.
