Artist statement about work: The work represents strength and majesty as two qualities of wisdom. The dominant colors of red and black convey the imposing power of strength, while the stronger lines of the white goods accentuate the presence of this strength. The top- center piece represents a crown, which is distinctive of majesty. All these components combine to embrace expression of the whole.
