"The Kill" Ed./6 back
 Bronze 560 x 750mm

Triumphant and in control he lifts the vanquished on his broad shoulders. He has killed his fellow man and the aim has been achieved. Blinded by his success, the burden he has placed on his environment goes unnoticed, but for the cry of the cheetah. This sculpture became the key to the series with its far deeper spiritual quality. My first drawings portrayed an antelope slung across his shoulders, but as I sketched, the idea of a human form came to the fore, manifesting the ghastly meaning of the series.
