The door of a bamboo bird cage was the inspiration for this piece. In Asia, it’s common to keep doves as pets. They become so tame that even with the door open, they will not fly out. This sculpture shows how quickly we can get used to the state in our lives so that even when an opportunity presents itself, we‘d stay put rather than to venture out and see what’s beyond that gate.
