DESCRIPTION: “The carver does not know that the tree feels pain” Agbegilere, the carver, sculpts new forms from wood. In this piece, the relationship between the carver and wood is employed as a metaphor to interrogate current issues between the government and the government workers. Are the present leaders aware of the pains of the populace?
