I consider myself very educated, open-minded and I love the arts, but I  must need a degree in Arts instead of the Sciences to understand this. This piece made me feel awkward and slightly uncomfortable. Like I am spying on a schizophrenic.

This piece is a post-modern piece. He wears the iron and felt on his feet to represent spirituality and reason, his gold face is to represent money, how we always seem to measure everything in money. The honey is to represent brotherhood because it is related to bees. This work really goes along with the strangeness of modern and post-modern art works.

It’s about surrendering to the sublimity of creativity. Let symbolism reflect directly into awareness. I really liked the subtle message about the futility of human endeavor and if I‘m not mistaken free Tibet!
