Starman in the Ancient Garden
1990 by Brower Hatcher
An enormous bronze face has streaked from the heavens and crashed into a classical courtyard.
Above it, a comet-like tail of steel mesh angles 27 feet into the sky. Miscellaneous objects, animals and even a small person float inside the mesh — apparently items that Starman has accumulated during his travels.
This mysterious sculpture by Brower Hatcher makes you think about the changes in civilization from past to present to future.
