Jim Dine

Column with Rock and Axe, 1983 Bronze Column with Rock and Ax was cast in an edition of three, this sculpture is unique in the edition as 48” were later added to the column to make it more elongated. The Solomonic column, attributed by its spiraling corkscrew-like shaft, came to Dine in a dream. The placement of the rock and ax on its apex further demonstrates the surrealistic, dreamlike, imagery.
