Tower of Stacked Humans

Statue the same all the way to top.

[Carol Rhonemus, 05/15/2017]

Do Ho Suh's "Karma" has stood outside the Albright-Knox Art Gallery since 2010. On the shoulders of a man crouches another man, and other, and another, each holding his hands over the eyes of the one below. The artist says its a statement about human interdependency. Despite its seemingly infinite height, the sculpture is just 23 feet tall.
