The Temple of Small Gods
assemblage of found objects
17 separate box-art constructions
It's now on a low round base with a motor, spinning slowly and making erratic little tinkling noises.
(So now it's taller than I am)
Some details at right
Dale Copeland, 2013

Those who know Terry Pratchett's Diskworld books will understand.
Gods have life if they have believers.
This is a temple not for those gods with hundreds of believers and thousands of followers, but for the small gods.
The superstitions, lucky charms, sacred grottos, hopes.

Dale's studio can be found on Surf Highway, Taranaki, New Zealand
