Eska Summit, Kings of the World series

The series of sculptures titled Kings of the World was inspired a recent rereading of The Little Prince, particularly the little boy’s journey to various asteroids and his subsequent meeting with one-dimensional men who embody vices of human nature. Shaped like various rock and mineral formations, these sculptures integrate small scale figures in their make-up which provides the powerful opportunity for open-ended narratives on themes such as social standing and inequality.
