Moché Bird-Runner

Steel, wire mesh, enamel 62”x30”x36”   Part of my “Migration Myth” Caravan series, the 5-foot-tall Moché Bird-Runner is based on an ancient Peruvian bird-man motif seen in mosaic earpieces at the Metropolitan Museum. While this image is also found on red pottery, in the mosaic he wears vivid color like a modern superhero.
