Council of Men (The Have and Have Nots)

H. Michael Hendrix's avatar H. Michael Hendrix

This entry, seven individual busts, is created from carved styrofoam then covered with joint compound and painted to look exactly like raw, carved wood. People have no idea that they are not real wood. The wood transitions from a rough, bark base, gradually to shoulders with carved shirts, to realistic finished faces. Six of the men, who are prosperous, are gazing at a single man who is obviously, less fortunate......But are they looking at him with disdain or compassion??? The answer lies within the opinion of the viewer!
