FM6 Walking Jackman

By Ernest Trova
Category: Sculpture


The group of six figures, placed atop a tiered black granite base, radiate from a central cube, with three heads down and three heads upright. The sculpture is a later rendition of Trova’s Falling Man series. It was the experience of working with mannequins that led him to develop his first series of faceless, armless, nude figures that represented the bureaucratic and technological ‘Everyman.’ These figures, which came to be titled the Falling Man series, first appeared in 1964.
