The only object in this sculpture is a jacked guy pulling a phelps face looking like he's trying to understand the movie Inception. The sculpture is the color of corroded bronze, so the green of a thick mucus after a bad cold. Form and texture can be seen everywhere, as it is a sculpture, but specifically in the high level of detail of his muscles and facial features. I believe the artist is trying to create a feeling of tension or stress for what is going on in the world. I believe he constructed this to show how he feels about the Boer War. I personally would display this in my home as it is universally recognizable and I could charge people to see it making the money back in no time.
