Behold, 2014


6 x 3.5 x 2.25 in (15.24 x 8.89 x 5.715 cm)

Behold is an object that can only be experienced in the hand. Antoni writes, “Curling the fingers of the outstretched palm into a fist withholds its gesture of openness. The giving and receiving has stopped. I curl my hand inward only to open it back up with the receptive hearing of an ear. Carved out of one stone, these disparate parts become one.”
