If we look at history we can see thousands of years of human suffering. Regardless of our advances we still engage in war, are guilty of human rights violations, and are responsible for the destruction of the planet and many animal species. This sculpture is dedicated to human folly.
It also a represents irreverence towards elitism, snobbery, and false rhetoric. Displaying it in an important museum is a way to question the integrity of our institutions. There is much discourse and arrogance that leaves a lot to be desired.
