In this sculpture, Fischer isolated two male nudes bonded by chains and fighting each other with swords. The engraving image is from "Battle of Nude Men" by Antonio del Pollaiuolo which may be based on sea gods or may be more clearly a classical reference to gladiators. In the traditional European sense of a division of assembly people physically separate based on their view points. Traditionally America has not - but the current political deadlock and the bondage of history has brought us to a point of eruption on such issues as healthcare reform and gun control. On the side of the piece there is a quote from Gabrielle Giffords, “I strongly believe that crossing the aisle for the good of the American people is more important that party politics”.
