This sculpture is quite heavy when assembled, but can be broken down for packing, so a simple shipping cost calculation is difficult.  I will be happy to provide free delivery within 50 miles of Oakland CA, or work with you to arrange transport options.  Please contact me if you’d like to discuss this.

The COVID-19 pandemic was an unprecedented disruption to the flow of life. What began as a dire health concern quickly devolved into a political issue that further isolated people from one another. This sculpture presents the COVID molecule as a ball-and-chain restraint device. A key is seen captured within a glass syringe, offering a way free. The dual meaning implied is that for the health conscious and vaccine skeptic alike, we were all bound by this thing, however we felt about it.
