Sculpture, by James Cook

 

Supplicant II

bronze, steel, cinnamon

88″ × 40″ × 40″

This is an assemblage of forms that in sum depict a figure kneeling over a bed of dry cinnamon sticks. The figure's torso is a rivoted drum out of which grows bamboo rhizomes and whose legs are skeletal. Shielding the figure is a tattered asian parasol. The dry aromatic fragrance of cinnamon inundates the space, perhaps a sweetness akin to the fruits of asceticism.
