Ritter Center House Roof Detail

This is a detail of one side of the roof. The snakes and ladders are from the original game that later was turned into chutes and ladders- a board game that deals with fate and luck. I created a board game, calendar motif on the house to symbolize the passage of time and the unknown twists and turns in one’s life. The numbers represent the days of the month and the passage of time. The house is 49″ x 48″ and is made with plaster, acrylic and oil paint. The sculpture is mahogany and oil paint.
