The detail image is part of a sculpture triggered by the Waco Religious/US government conflict. It is called "The Private Pipeline To God", A major problem within our world population is that of a need to have or a belief that we do have our own private pipeline to God and that all others are "wrong" and should either be converted or eliminated. The second image is called "MX Miss Elle" It is about the belief that we will survive any and all attacks because it is our duty to defend the world or family by using deadly force. Both of the above pieces are social commentaries that are caused by treating different people as a commodity. I personally feel that the scourge of overpopulation aids in the development of weird religious and political tribal rites that cause self destruction or confrontation without the possibility of reasonable retreat. We do have to learn how to curb these tendencies and make every person valuable.
