Royalty, About Statues

lllll

"Locke has ornamented these busts with a collage of military medals, metal masks, lace, plant foliage and cowrie shells... The dressing up of these royal rulers in a bizarre regalia is clearly a subversive act, and a refutation of the ‘deadness’ of history. For Locke, it seems, past and present can share the same space."
