Evan Penny, proposed a work that was conceived for a specific position on the ridge at the front of the Sculpture Park. This 2 meter high bronze Mask contains the face of a youth on the concave side. A stereoscopic effect is created for the viewer as one walks by the sculpture so that the image appears to be convex. By leaving the weld marks open between the individual castings, Penny adds a further illusion by suggesting the face is made of collapsing puzzle pieces. The sculpture appears like the head of Zeus fallen from the skies. On the back of the sculpture is a sleeping head modeled in a loose fashion. The location selected by Penny was arrived at by studying the path of the sun and prevailing wind direction and was installed exactly as planned.
