Sins of Man

Possibly, this is my personal all time favorite sculpture.   I  had always worried that this piece would be misunderstood, but surprisingly reviewers seem to nail it.


I chose a female body builder for this piece because I wanted to show “woman” as a powerful force in the world.  Unfortunately, in our testosterone-driven society, “woman” remains shackled and bound like a bird in a gilded cage.


The gilded crown of thorns was done as an afterthought.


Who else in society is as willing to sacrifice of  themselves as “woman”?


Who else is as Christ-like?
