"Humans have had the urge to create and possess figurines since prehistoric times. The attraction of figurines then and now tends to be one of identifying with certain attributes one wants to acquire. Today, we create and collect these figurines to identify with their qualities. Be they elite, genteel and refined, or exotic and provocative—they are powerful and desirable. By taking the gamut of these images, and disassembling and reassembling them, we may get a fresh look at who we are, and what we yearn to be."
