Tar Baby vs. St. Sebastian, 1999.

Michael Richards, Jamaican American, born United States, 1963 - 2001. This is my favorite piece. This is cast from the artist's body and it's a tribute to the Tuskegee Airmen. The planes are representing arrows that were shot at St. Sebastian, an early Christian martyr. The spooky thing is that Richards died in his studio which was 92nd floor of Tower One on September 11th, 2001.
