Captive Image #4, from the Ethnic Heritage Group
, c. 1974–76
Captive Image #4 is an assemblage sculpture of a figure with black and white stripes on the legs, a broken leather strap around its waist, and the number 12 written on the torso, referring to the uniform of a prisoner. In place of a head, there is a radio or television screen with an antenna, which may suggest someone who is "tuned in" and therefore potentially caught up with media propaganda.
