Monkey with Nimbus
ceramic and found objects (doors, cable spool)
approx. 9' tall
This piece is inspired in part by the magnificent work at the Mogao Caves in Dunhuang, and in part by all the images I saw of Julius, the Paul Frank Monkey. Julius is extremely popular in China, a symbol of the West which is also reminiscent of Sun WuKong, the monkey king.

A place for me to ramble on when I need to take a break.
