Description: 

"Two very old roots, one like a goat or chicken head, like what people cut off for sacrificing, tightly fenced in. Everything in a frame, framed up.

"Two very old roots, one like a goat or chicken head, like what people cut off for sacrificing, tightly fenced in. Everything in a frame, framed up. Two silhouettes of people, one in a grave, who didn't satisfy. The gold is not real gold: Children go after the artificial and can lose their lives, their heritage, dishonor their family tree. Is the labor of the old man being appreciated?" —Lonnie Holley
