Brooklyn-based artist Nicolas Holiber, has created “Head of Goliath,” a sculpture made from reclaimed wood and found objects.
Inspired by the biblical tale of David and Goliath, Nicolas Holiber created just the head of Goliath to represent the challenges that people find when they come to New York.
“People come to New York to be the underdog and beat whatever obstacle is in front of them…The head of Goliath was David’s trophy and I hope viewers will find inspiration in this piece and think about what Head of Goliath, as a symbol, means to them. For myself and many friends of mine, New York is the Goliath,” says the artist.
The sculpture can be found in Tribeca Park, New York, until the 20th of September.
