strange bird
......."in pieces such as "Strange Bird," a work in marble depicting an angularly avian figure that harks back to the birds depicted in Egyptian hieroglyphics, as well as in the designs of the Aztecs and other ancient civilizations. Within the body of the bird are smaller human figures that also suggest primitive symbols. At the same time, the piece is thoroughly contemporary in its quirky inventiveness and its bold semi-abstract thrust, forging a vital link between past and present plastic concerns"..............
