$ 6290.00 In stock
Product description: The Chairman is a darkly humorous figure formed by a block of wood with appliqués and paint representing a head with owl-like eyes and a necktie. Contrasting with the crude squareness of the block is a long, curved, rusty steel wand projecting out from below the waist. Various icons are attached to this wand: a human shape gushing a fountain of metal strands, a beetle, a knot of barbed wire. This is not exactly a political cartoon - just an impression of a powerful source of scary turmoil.
