This large ceramic piece, a very impressive work, looks like nothing so much as a weird interchangable screwdriver tip.
The title does give an impression of it being intended to represent a spear, something primitive and rough. Instead, it is precise, angled, lightly spiraling. The coloring makes it seem as it is it glowing, as if metal had been placed in fire.
The key to this piece within the Anderson is the placement. It is in a corner with the mysterious eye on the other side, and miniature city-like models across the way. It stands out, because of the hazier nature of the rest of the work. It is concrete, solid, in a world that is defined by it's light.
