"What Is, What Isn't"

30" x 30"

Hand Carved Wall Relief with Oil and Acrylic

On its surface "What is, What Isn't" is simply about how crows and ravens like shiny things and will steal those things. Upon closer inspection, the viewer sees that all of the coins have snakes etched into them which calls into question the validity of a crows desire to collect those coins. The same goes for us as humans, often we find that we want or need something, but many times we want that thing to address an underlying issue. Is the object of our desire what we need, or isn't it?
