Zodiac Heads


While I was at the Phoenix Art Museum, I took the opportunity to view the Circle of Animals, Ai Weiwei's zodiac heads in gold.  The really are a dramatic group of sculptures.






I thought the Ox was particularly attractive.






























But, since I was born in the year of the dog, I had to get a photo of the happy looking canine.

So they're the Chinese Zodiac figures Sharon? Was looking to see if I could find the tiger :)

They do catch the eye. I have seen some of his other work from news articles here.

They looks great displayed like that. The ones they had here a couple of years ago were displayed outdoors in the reflecting pool in front of our City Hall.

The ox seems happy.

Fascinating. Just so long as you don't get a head of yourself. :))

Wonderful exhibit. I may have to drive down to see it. I would like to see my "sign": the dragon.

Nice! These look familiar, but I can't think of where I might have seen the exhibition.

I'm a big fan of Ai Weiwei. However, I've never seen this work before.
