An Armload of Diamonds from Shanghai

The sequins or diamonds idea came from the influence of seeing Li Chen’s sculpture at the Frye museum in Seattle. Eternity tableau, a clay-and-wood installation, that takes up a big room, has at its center a 12-root ruling figure holding sparkling diamonds in his arms. He, clearly, is the leader—  his entourage, mill around him.
