The Bureaucrat by IanNorbury The Bureaucrat by IanNorbury
The bureaucrat is the embodiment of the narrowminded, vindictive, jobsworth who is conducting a personal crusade to thwart the hopes and ambitious of the private citizen. In his position of power, sitting on the throne of shattered dreams he points maliciously to his book of regulations, telling yet another unsuccessful applicant - "No you can't". His life is bound up in red tape as is his body and his piles of files; resting securely on the solid stone block of his official power.

Walnut, limewood, pear, patinated copper, various veneers & marble

Including base 21 inches / 52 cm

The depiction here is quite satisfying, if I must say so. And the craftsmanship makes the looking worthwhile. Such a delectable piece! The DD should not have been delayed, for sure.

What you say is true, also. I myself must agree it is difficult to function in a society as this, anymore. The places we live are so limited, so smothered, so...Impossible. Cut the tape already, give people some breathing room.
