I went for a walk through the Hirshhorn Sculpture Garden on the Mall recently, reflecting on the increasingly bombastic war of words between our president and the dear leader of North Korea, two fat little men with delusions of grandeur and total lack of consciences. I labeled this artwork Attempt at Decapitation.
Could words alone lead to devastating consequences? This piece I named War with North Korea.
It happens in schoolyards, and these cunning megalomaniacs demonstrate the guile and silly word escalations of schoolchildren. I called this statue The Battle.
The faux deity who has killed his half brother with a chemical agent and executed his uncle by shooting him with an antiaircraft gun, and the lazy grifter who has assaulted women, lambasted gold star families, disparaged war heroes, praised neo-Nazis, assailed the free press and displayed shocking ignorance and startling narcissism are two scorpions in a bottle with everyone in the world watching anxiously. Meet The Victor.
