Agony Of Slavery

Sculpture - Sculpture
This is a full size bust in clay of the agonized face of a slave. A man ripped from his homeland, his family & his culture. Forced to live in the worst conditions on the ship bringing him to the USA. Frightened, alone, treated
inhumanly and not understanding why. Then put on a stage with people all around him, looking in his mouth, poking & probing his body. Strange sounds being spoken, buy he understands nothing. Rough hands pull him off stage & hand him over to an angry looing white man who puts heavy chains around his hands and legs then shoves him into a large box with African men, woman & children from many different tribes.
