Description:
Dr. Charles Smith believes in the Sankofa proverb, "You can't go forward until you look back." That is why the majority of his sculptures have two faces as shown on this found object sculpture. The cement figure is painted brown on the frontal face, red on the raised lettering cascading down its chest, and white on the remaining body areas. This work seeks to bring awareness to the deadly disease, Ebola, which has plagued many African nations.
