This piece represents a major event that has happened in recent times that has greatly affected American culture. North Tower 9/11 was carved after the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center.
I was thinking, What is America? What could I carve in stone that would represent this event that forever changed America? I wanted the piece to transcend the obvious symbols of the Twin Towers or the American flag. To me, America is comfort food and fun, so M&Ms became the perfect representation for America in this sculpture.
The bag is carved marble. The M&Ms were cut in marble then cast.
Dimensions: The bag is 30"h X 15"w X 20"d. The sculpture is on a base that is 18"h.
