"Museum Piece", 2014, patinated bronze, 7 1/2" X 6 1/4" x 2", edition of 12.
Based on the plaster fig leaf commissioned by Queen Victoria to cover her recently gifted full sized copy of David in 1857.The newly adorned David became the first acquisition of what was to become the V&A and ushered in the Victorian Era. The bronze and stainless versions created have been scaled to accommodate a 6' David. The role of art to obfuscate while seducing has had a long history.
