About the artwork
This whimsical sculpture by Wu Qiong depicts a man holding a spear and standing on a camel, who appears to be gearing up for battle. Despite the known perils of war, the man’s expression appears peaceful and fearless, as his eyes are closed and his head is upturned. The artist’s use of stainless steel further reflects the inner resilience of the figure, as it conveys his sturdy nature. Wu Qiong conveys the courage that individuals can have in terrifying situations, while displaying his technical prowess through the perfectly sculpted work.
