Baron's work is a monolithic stratagraphic core sample embedded with sports artifacts which emerge from the sculpted surface. This work is part of an ongoing series entitled Unearthing the American Dream, a mock archeological excavation of our contemporary culture -- in this case, of our sporting culture. The form becomes trophy like, acting as a pedestal for all the unknown sporting heroes.
