I was a studio assistant in Sandy’s studio on Brooke st. when this was built. We face a lot of technical issues with this piece -some of the figures were robotic and we had problems with mice. The color was carotene based and not light fast. I’m so glad it has finally found a home. Say hey to Sandy if you see her.
