Weighed down

Transgender animalsThe trans-sexual animals tell of society’s elastic and ever changing sexual identities. The lion was chosen as an ancient symbol of grandeur and cultural significance whilst the female and male genitalia tell a more modern story of confusion about our identity and place in the world.   A simple brass chain holds the animal down to the heavy ball on the ground. One feels immense sympathy with this kindly figure weighed down by society’s expectations. The kangaroo lounging under a beach umbrella has a more relaxed approach and is enjoying the situation.
