"My Offering" by Than Htay Maung. Approximately 300 cast plaster hands — Mr. Maung’s, his wife’s, and others’ — reach out from the gallery walls, each holding a round loaf of golden-crusted bread. The gesture is peaceful, even altruistic, a distilled dialogue on sharing and nurturing, the symbolism both bodily and spiritually imbued. The numbers of hands are unsettling reminders of the vastness of need. On view at the Mattress Factory until MAY 27, 2012.
