From the artist:
Formed from the earth, but cracked and vulnerable to being broken, these feet of clay draw attention to the hidden flaw of humanity - mans inability to love their fellow man. forty feet - one foot formed for each day of lent - a period of self examination and reflection in preparation for the crucifixion and subsequent resurrection of Jesus where symbolically good has triumphed over evil Here lying in a heap abandoned in the corner of an outhouse, this symbol of pilgrimage, and of all things natural that keep us grounded in reality on which we stand or fall, questions our own spiritual progress. At a time when the western world has seen millions of refugees tramping across Europe in search of a future for their families, amid the turmoil of civil war, this piece echoes the plight of Jewish refugees in wars past.
