Antler sculpture created at SFAI by artist, Suzanne Torres
An Object of Desire
wood, cement, twine, porcelain, nails
32 x 47 x 23 in.

An Object of Desire examines contradiction in our survival mechanisms and defenses. Here, the antlers sheer scale provides opportunity to procreate by battling other males and simultaneously the likelihood of becoming a trophy. The antlers, therefore, become a paradox. They are at the same time the demise and symbol of survival for the animal.
