I happened to be creating this sculpture at the time of George Floyd’s murder. I was thinking about racial injustice and that not much has changes since my great, great grandmother Sophy’s lifetime. The sculpture is a bust, a vehicle used to memorialize European nobleman and women. Thoughts of peace and equality are symbolized by the white dove. The column detail represents justice. The golden egg hidden in back is unreachable.
