Originally conceived as a utilitarian receptacle of dreams, this sculpture of feral composite is reborn as tribute to societies breakdown in consumption of knowledge and languishing art of “written” communication. One of a vast series, this individual installation sees fewer and fewer viewers, waiting all the while for its next incarnation. The exhibit is restricted and open, only Monday thru Saturday.

Born of divine inspiration and incalculable hours of artisanship, this enameled iron casting has been conceived as more than an individual piece, relying as much on the context of its surroundings as it does on itself. Surrounded by a stark backdrop of brick and asphalt this industrial age clawfoot creature waits poised to pounce any unsuspecting prey which might foolishly emerge to find its end. An allegory for the dangers born of the industrial revolution, this work remains a museum favorite.
