"Ozymandias" - 2009

Laminated wood and steel - 20' x 18' x 1'-6" - DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Lincoln, MA.

This iconic male symbol that appears to be sinking into the ground was inspired from images of half buried Egyptian monuments made during the 19th century and the poem by Percy Bysshe Shelley:

"…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…."

This work was commissioned for the grounds of the DeCordova Sculpture Park in Lincoln, MA.

"OZYMANDIAS" was featured in the national comic: Zippy the Pinhead on October 15, 2009.
