Richard Tipping - Evolution Sucks #16 - Innocence & Experience

Innocence & Experience, 1979. 

Black granite, engraved text. Dimensions say H 15 x W 40cm, to be confirmed.
Photographed in a butcher's window, 1980. Private collection, Sydney. This is the only record I have of this sculpture. Sold at the solo exhibition Airpoet at Robin Gibson Gallery, Sydney, 1980. The human as tiger? We breed our prey.
"When the stars threw down their spears
And water'd heaven with their tears:
Did he smile his work to see?

Did he who made the Lamb make thee?"
      William Blake, in The Tyger, in Songs of Innocence and Experience
