"Heads of State, Round Table Summit", 2006
Size: 60 in round table, 53 in high heads on cloaked pedestals. Each head: 12 in. high x 24 in circumference.
This piece is about equality, communication and tolerance. Based on the King Arthur Legendary Round Table which was "a device to enable the knights to be seated in such a way that none had precedence", I created 8 imaginary characters, representing diverse culture, to stand in a theatrical manner around a mosaic table.
