Babel

Babel

Babel is part of my resin box series.  Its a very deep box incorporating one of Franz Xaver Messerschmidt’s “character head” busts.  I sliced the bust in half and gilded it with silver.  The box is mirrored and the sun sculpture is suspended in clear resin.  “Babel” refers to the biblical tale of the hubris and arrogance of man and the subsequent splintering of one language into many.  Communication came to a halt and chaos reigned.

About trompehalf

I am an artist with a fascination with history. Not battles per se, but the culture and personalities that shape history. Gossip is good too.
