|Under a Starry Sky represents a single moment in time on the earth at night.
It shows people engaged in various activities - eating, drinking, fighting,
giving birth, dying, watching tv, etc. Only a few figures at the top, looking up at
the glorious night sky, are fully aware of their connectedness to the cosmos.
The work was financed by the Chinese government. I did this work and
Driving to the Western Paradise at a foundry in the countryside near Shanghai.
It took me 3 weeks, working 12 to 18-hour days, to do the clay for the two works.
This sculpture is now located at a new art college in Shanghai.
