Bronze sculpture, inspired by words of Hamlet from William Shakespeare.
Curator's corner: The phrase "To be or not to be" has more depth than meets the eye. Hamlet use of the words "to be" before the words "or not to be" shows his predilection to live rather than die.
Our Hamlet in this sculpture is a woman, who, with her upward facing head, seems to be searching for an answer. The face on the side seems to be grappling with her, pulling her in a different direction. All this, while she stabilizes herself on a skull; as if acknowledging that death 'exists', but is unwilling to consider it as anything more than a distant secondary 'option' to her current predicament.
