2016: The Offering (a polyptych, A story in 4 parts)

The bird descends from outside frame and prepares to land. This is about Man’s fascination with and arrogance about wanting controlling Nature. Open frame sculpture allows views from both sides.
In this last frame, the bird takes flight suddenly, indelicately for the person offering bread crumbs from his hand. Man’s playful desire to feed is counter to the real creature’s need to eat.
