Allegory

Allegory Series

An allegory is a way of presenting abstract ideas or moral principals. I do this with manufactured objects. The sculptures are based on my observations and suppositions of human behavior and events. In this series I have combined ideas such as religion and business. Other pieces deal with situations and events we are familiar with and some are products for the betterment of mankind.

Al Honig, San Francisco, California, 1998
