This vase is inspired by a photograph I found of myself as a child, dressed as a cowboy. As children in the 1980s we played a game called cowboys and Indians in which the cowboys were considered the ‘goodies’ and the Indians the ‘badies’. I desperately wanted to be a cowboy, though at the time didn’t fully understand the irony in this desire.


The arrow is a symbol of the  Western characterised view of American culture that was depicted in the spaghetti western movies I watched as a child. At the time I was unaware of the heavily edited and biased view that I was being shown.
