Promethean Passion:

By Timeless, 2021


Three stars, a musket and lightning bolt attend a grubby confluence. Deliver down history the flame of Liberty they will — fire stolen from an angry god who damns the folly still. At once a contorted wisp is he, naked and awkward against the razor breeze, all caught up in revolution, alone to slay insidiousness. A shoeless gaggle gathers light to forge tomorrow’s world, all astride that great abyss; a courier with a calling each, all alone with something  precious…


[With 3D printing, art collectors may now opt to have this message indelibly embossed into this sculpture’s any-sized replications as an indelible beacon for Liberty...]
