Gulliver's Lincoln

When I entered the Nash gallery I did not expect to find such amazing artwork. I noticed I became interested in the very detailed artwork. The piece titled “Gulliver’s Lincoln.? by Bruce McCombs is a very detailed Intaglio print made in 2007. The print displays a city set in the 1950’s with a very large Lincoln being constructed on by small people. The small people are life size but the vehicle is at least 20 times larger than them. There are numerous little men working on preparing this large vehicle for someone. Some details include a helicopter hovering above, loading the headpiece onto the hood. Also the road behind the Lincoln is much wider than the road for the people. This piece made me think how so many people can slave to create something that is useful for one person.
