"Bird of prey" comes from Hochbaum's 2011 exhibit in Berlin titled "Kaidan-Shu".
The entire installation was composed of works about ghosts, spirits, and demons inspired by Japanese and Korean myth and horror.
The image for "Bird of prey" features a model David photograhed while in Tokyo as the "Tori Onna"(Bird woman).
The calligraphy in the top right was created by a close friend of the artist. The characters represent the "Tori Onna".
The work is made from a black and white silver print mounted on MDF with acrylics and gold leaf. The kangi is on ricepaper with ink.
It is in a custom stained oak frame handmade by the artist for the 2011 exhibit.
It is 13.25" x 14.5" x 2.5"
The back is signed, wired and ready to hang.
