“About six years ago” quotes El Anatsui “I found a big bag of liquor bottles sitting on the street. I picked the bag up and tookthe bag to my studio. The bag sat there for about 6 months I had no idea what to do with them. But that’s when I got the idea to flatten them. I didn’t know what to flatten them into.”So Anatsui just made what other people think of as a man’s face, gardens, fields, or waves. This is a very interesting sculpture. I would recomend that people come and see it in the African art.
