Historical Context:
This piece was a part of Herbert Murrie’s exhibition “Chance,” which showed in Asciano, Sienna. The exhibition followed a path through town, beginning at the Church of San Francesco, terminating at the Museum of Palazzo Corboli. Murrie is reported stating that he wanted “to send a message of positivity, let us know that a possibility exists even in times of political, economic, and social crisis."
