A procession of figures liberated from nearby ceramic vases parade the perimeter of an ornamented pool. Just inside the window a display case of glassware is visible through the rippling transparency of that framed oval. The figures circling the case each heft oversize vessels from the displays inside. They have become containers with legs, migrating cultural vessels. If water invented humans in order to transport itself from one place to another (Tom Robbins), culture finds humans useful in much the same way.
