  1. I'm fairly confident that there is no relationship between your serendipitous sculpture and the 50th anniversary of the release of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band --notwithstanding the posting date herein.
    --and yet, and yet, I tried to connect four of these ashen heads to a specific Beatle just in case... The caricaturist in me concluded this: John is at the toppermost (of the Poppermost I surmise), George is below him right next to Ringo who is in a hole (one Paul has yet to fix, evidently...) and Paul is at the very bottom rung with his Juju eyeballs.
    (the 3 in between George and Paul are likely managers, roadies or press agents)
    I realize this is quite likely a projection of my own visual inclinations upon your art, but that is indeed what was done to a large number of the Beatles' songs. And to a lot of art in general. My feelings are that if art does not awaken much in the viewer, then it lives solely as an elite expression of the artist and is living only a half life.
    It needs to exist within and without the creator.

    1. Tthis is very interesting what cause my very little work in your head. I am with you about the viewers. It is the same as with music. Music starts to be music untill there are listeners. And indeed an unseen artwork in a drawer is not ART... well, I am glad if any of my work can unlock some kind of emotions, feelings of whatsever it may be called and provoke anything what so nicely wrote Denis Diderot in his assay " move me, amaze me, touch me, let me shiver, cry, tremble, fill me with indignation".
      Thank you!

      and indeed it is coincidence (Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band)
