This fully functional chopping block by Juan Muñoz offers a disquieting quasi-narrative. The hand motif, seen here in a most literal use, reoccurred often in the artist's body of work. Chopping Block features a hand-carved, wooden hand sculpture holding a real knife with a wooden handle. This edition was completed during the time of the artist's death in 2001 and was seen to fruition by his wife, the artist Cristina Iglesias, in 2002.
