Duane Hansen [Bio 1925-1996]
These sculptures are a great antidote to all of the Madison Avenue hype that we Americans have been fed constantly for years.  There should be more art about average people.  Don't you think?  BTW, I think I saw that young shopper earlier today at the mall.  She almost knocked me over!  There are more of his images here and here.

Chinese Paper Gods
These paper gods were collected over 60 years by missionary Ann S. Goodrich, who spent much of her life trying to understand Chinese culture including writing several books on the subject.  These Paper Gods are part of the colorful Chinese New Years celebrations.  There were paper gods displayed in each room in the house, which were then burned after a year use or burned directly after ceremonial usage.
