Duane Hanson - Tourists II 1988 Since the early Duane Hanson has been making startlingly lifelike sculptures of middle America accomplished through a complex process of casting from live models, recreated in bronze or fibreglass resin.
A toppled vase has smashed to reveal a hoard of stolen silver spoons, netsuke and jewellery. Flying skullships constructed from animal skulls, silver and broken ceramics are flown by enslaved insects. They deposit stolen objects into vases as they fly past. An angry swarm of honey bees, controlled by the fairies, spews from other vases.
