    “This bronze is a three-dimensional representation of the passing of time. The human figure is composed of countless heads signifying the genetic presence of ancestors in each human being. It is a profound and innovative icon of the human condition, bringing into visual form the biological fact that every living being contains the encoded traces of figures stretching back millennia. It relates closely to a series of paintings of a similar motif, most notably Headman, 1999.” John Russell Taylor, Breuer-Weil, The Project, London, 2001, p. 25
