The Contingent

Shell Warrior stands defiantly upon a four-legged urn reminiscent of a Chinese bronze censor ready to burn incense - offerings to win favours from the Gods. The feathered shoulders initially purposed for an owl hold up an aqua-blue battle helmet and fix in place the yellow hooves chopped from the limbs of a forgotten donkey. Shell Warrior is an assemblage of liberated fragments which have come together through a continuing series of breakages, edits and re-arrangements until final confirmation.
