This sculpture is based on a specific artifact from ancient China and deals with my understanding of time as a continuum. As our future unfolds, our past recedes at an equal rate. Humans carry the past forward while animals are totally engaged in the present. This sculpture consists of three elements, a wagon, a human figure and an animal – in a stylized but recognizable shape.
It deals metaphorically with the human desire to keep time and make sense of it – and the necessity to do so.
