|Tim Lewis, while mining the roots of family and home and while referencing legend and belief, has created a body of work that stands today as an exceptional example of a rich "telling." We at the Customs House Museum are honored to share this unique talent. This piece is another great depiction of a man leaving earth. This time he is clinging to the rocket, flying high. This piece reflects bigger dreams ' mars or bust' the feeling that we all aspire to escape, that we want to think about life elsewhere. Even Obama is considering spending money on sending man to mars. It would be better to start here and buy the carving and imagine. Just to look out your back door and see that piece staring back at you knowing that the man on the rocket is taking a trip there.
