Hillary, A Hell fo a Gal

She is running for President. She wants to get back to her old address on Pennsylvania Avenue. Good for her!

Be that as it may, this is a three dimensional political cartoon in clay.
The reference for this sculpture is the Garden of Earthly Delights by H. Bosch. Hieronymus Bosch 1450 – 1516, a resident of the Netherlands, who had a successful career as a painter of religious visions. There are three panels to this painting. The panel on the right was a depiction of hell. While many of the tortures of hell are depicted as musical instruments (husband Bill’s saxophone might fit in), I picked another figure. That is the hollow body supported by two trees growing out of two boats floating in water.
