2008
19" high by 9" wide by 6" deep which includes base

Sandcast glass on slate base

Inspiration drawn from the heads on Easter Island and the poem by Percy Shelley 'Ozymandias'. For me this piece represents the fact that no matter who or what you are in life, time will have its way! We are but specks of dust in this infinite world. This piece wasn't made to make you sad, just to give you perspective - If you've failed, pick yourself back up and try again! If you're pleased with yourself, enjoy it, but don't Lord it over others! Just be the best person you can be, because at the end of the day, you only have yourself to answer to:

Ozymandias
by: Percy Bysshe Shelley

I met a traveler from an antique land
Who said: "Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert... Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed;
And on the pedestal these words appear:
My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings,
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.
