Ecce Homo
Medium: Wood branches, egg, string, glass vitrine
Year made: 2006
"Ecce Homo was the ultimate of my egg and nest series. I thought of the logos of the Christ and the head gestating the egg idea of freedom, crowned by suffering. The black egg is the Vedic symbol of spirit. To me it represents spirit conquering suffering, in the gnostic sense. Ultimately though the work is intended as a meditation on these and other mysteries. I would encourage people to arrive at their own gnosis, the truest solitary experience one can have here on earth" - Paul Fryer
Location: London
Date acquired: 23 November 2006
