Twins by J.D. Perkin
These fighters seem very evenly matched, and equally protected by their patches of gear. Meanwhile, the simplicity of the forms evokes ancient totems. Place your bets; who will prevail? Or will they be unearthed in a thousand years, still deadlocked in combat?

Details: Ceramic, 16″ × 20″ × 8″
