Five Grotesque Heads

Four Grotesque Heads

This particular piece is historically incorrectly categorized as well as in possession of a misleading title.  Interestingly there are only four heads, that is, heads of men who are living.  The fifth head is in the process of dying violently.  While the four remaining men take varying levels of pleasure in his destruction.

Each with their own personal reaction to his demise.  Each reaction ranging through; indifferent observation, satisfaction, confirmation of fate and utter pleasure.   The grotesque heads capture the character of the men in society in which no person enjoys the pleasure of acquaintance.
