In the Balance
mixed media assemblage
Clay & ceramic heads. Piano key.
(I'd had the old clay African head for years, and then found that wonderfully snooty-looking small
ceramic head in a flea market in Paris. It's got a fabric turban ... lovely thing. So very self-assured.)

In the Balance?
It's more of a question than a statement.
Not the "tried in the balance and found wanting" quote.
Not the "at the end we are all equal" sentiment.
No, a genuine question. What really matters?
Is our worth measured by our own opinion or that of others?
By deeds, by possessions, by our ethics?
What, if anything, REALLY matters?
