Angry Neptune

Large bronze sculpture resembling a headless human figure. The surface texture is very rough with deep voids and coarse patches of metal. The brown patina has a whitish tinge.
Michele Oka Doner
This is one of three Doner sculptures installed together- Angry Neptune, Salacia and Strider. "Angry Neptune was made as a statement about the obscene gestures the human species has repeatedly made toward the sea. Robbing the shores of fish, sending plastics into the deep seas, spilling toxins into the water, etc. I feel his rage is palpable." Michele Oka Doner, 10/6/2010
Museum purchase made possible by a bequest from Clarence and Ruth Roy, the W. Hawkins Ferry Fund, and the support of the artist
