This painting depicts an outsized figurative sculpture revealed by the imaginary demolition of a building’s façade. The subject is a very distant descendant of giant sculptural Buddhas from the 6th century, and is simultaneously imprisoned and protected by the architectural structure around her—a decayed scaffold and excavated tomb that holds something that almost seems alive.
