Radcliffe Bailey, Mound Magician, 1997.
This BIG work of art is made up of lots of different pieces and materials. Is it a painting? A sculpture? A collage?
First, step up close see how many different things you can see. Try to find the items below:
- • The number 20 on a ribbon
- • “Birmingham”
- • “Memphis”
- • Footprints
- • A picture of a baseball game
- • The number 25 on a star
Now, take a big step back and look at the whole thing.
What does the shape look like?
It’s a baseball diamond!
