Mixed media sculptures and Brooklyn based artist Nicolas Holiber love to work with found wood. His latest project titled “Head of Goliath”, is a four-foot-tall, ten-foot-long, public sculpture on display in Tribeca Park. The originality of this sculpture is that it is made only from New York City’s debris, specifically reclaimed wood from shipping pallets and other found materials.
People come to New York to be the underdog and beat whatever obstacle is in front of them. The head of Goliath was David’s trophy and I hope viewers will find inspiration in this piece and think about what Head of Goliath, as a symbol, means to them. For myself and many friends of mine, New York is the Goliath.
