160. Lumberjack in the Box, painted by Erika Nelson

Artist statement by Erika Nelson of Kansas - "Growing up, my Mother always thought that grain silos were actually houses for giants. Eventually she realized that it wasn’t true (not for the reasons you think... she decided that since giants were so big, they probably couldn’t bend over in the silo, and could not reach the food provided for them through the little doors at the bottom. They’d starve to death, therefore, silos could not possibly humanely contain giants), but her story stuck with me. I often wonder what certain commonly seen structures contain, and that is what inspired my proposal for 'Lumberjack in the Box'."
