Artist's Statement

Barack Obama was sculpted out of water clay, then molded with latex and a plaster shell, then cast out of plastic and filled with ridged foam to get the final medium. Along with the scissors, I then sprayed it black and stained it with gold to create a stone-like touch. The base is wood, and attaching the base to the sculpture is a metal piece. The ribbon is made of fabric.
