If you haven't done so, take some time and go to his website and see the virtual museum of his Goetz pieces. The beauty and satire will awe and inspire you.

 

The only thing I miss on the website is his commentary and explaination of the pieces. Maybe if we all beg him, he will add it....it brings the pieces to life for me.

 

Thank you once again for sharing with us.
