from 'the oxherding' series

Antonio did as sculpture environments, the stages of spiritual life and enlightment, expressed in the Zen tradition as the oxherding series.  There are, I believe, 6 two dimensional panels in the series. Here, of course, Antonio takes on, quite successfully, the story in 3 dimensions!  This is the first in the series where the man goes out to find and tame an ox.

 Here are a couple more from the series:

Here's a YouTube video of Antonio and Jeremy looking at the series:
