Carousel of Time


The pin-tail ducks are emblematic of an endangered species (encroached upon by human usurpation of wetlands); five of them move around in a circle at the base of an antique world map (a symbol of human concepts of time and the geography of the planet); an encrusted ‘ancient’ duck of no specific identity (the Eternal Duck!) sits atop as icon of all the forms of water fowl that have ever lived and those that will continue to survive. This artwork is an honorific commemoration of these life forms.
