Australian sculptor Rodney Glick is now based in Bali, where he works with local woodcarvers to create sculptures that conflate ancient Hindu imagery and contemporary imagery, the sacred and the profane. His Everyone sculptures present ordinary people as multi-armed, multi-headed deities in yogic poses and holding symbolic attributes. Glick seems to be making the point that, just as the Hindu gods possess human frailties, we possess a god-like capacity for love, courage, and vengeance.
