This sculpture depicts a father scooping up his son. This imagery reflects the final sleep of boyhood. The back of the sculpture references Ray Bradbury’s “Illustrated Man”, a character from his novel about a tattooed man who sweats, and, as a result, his tattoos come to life. The twisting figures in the back of the sculpture allude to Bradbury’s stories and showcase Slatoff’s remarkable imagination.
