Carved wooden figure of a human. The torso, neck and head make an elongated cylinder along the certical axis. The hands rest at its sides near the umbilicus. The hair, face, hands, genitals, and feet are detailed.
Representation of a female ancestor figure. The incised patterns on the figure mimic body scarification patterns then in use in Tabwa communities. The patterns are a kind of cosmogram: the symmetry and zigzag lines depict Tabwa conceptions of the relationships between the divine and earthly. Scarification is a kind of memory-making: the process of undergoing scarification creates a distinct mnemonic device, allowing the past to be quickly and vividly recalled in the present. In both skin and wood, the patterns associated with ancestral ties are made durable. The figure's coiffure is short and plaited, typical of Tabwa females, and denotes age and status.
Horizontal format etching of a Kronborg city square settled on the edge of a body of water. In the foreground are the roofs and upper levels of buildings, suggesting that the view is looking down on the square from a high-up window. The buildings are drawn with great detail, all the carvings in the stone of the foreground are pronounced, and the buildings further in the distance have their detailed work and brick patterns clearly visible. In the small area of the street square is a group of figures holding long objects, possibly for the purpose of playing a game of some sort. The sky above the buildings and sea is dark, grey and cloudy, whose color is reflected on the water. In the far distance another hilly shoreline is visible.
This is an oil painting in a vertical format painted in tones of brown, white and black. It shows four circular forms and areas with thick paint applied in broad brushstokes.
Terry Winters is an American abstract artist whose paintings in the 1980s depicted natural forms and botanical studies. In an interview from 2008 he described his early work: "For me, painting's capacity to make images through the manipulation of materials seems to be its most powerful and magical quality. How a painting is built is a big part what it means. Mark-making, gesture and touch-those are the key components as to how to generate images through painting."

This kimono required a labor intensive technique called shibori, in which hundreds of hours would have been spent tying up each small section where white can be seen on the kimono before immersing it in dye. Shibori textiles are very expensive due to the time and skill required to produce them.
