HEAD OF MAN

(Back to Art on the Grounds)

Head of Man draws a striking similarity between the egg form and the human skull. Resting upon a two-ton, 10' long carved and polished piece of basalt, the bronze bust of a man's head is covered in a patchwork of small pieces of bronze alloy celebrating the diversity of our humanity and the fact that we are "all a part of each other and all in it together." Although massive seen from afar, the delicate and complex surface of the head is revealed on closer view.
