This piece chronicles the interplay of two brothers and recounts the transformation in the younger (Joe) by the domination and control of the elder, who was also his father figure and employer. Built on a fez cap, the piece references an Egyptian taskmaster hat; the imagery along the base reflects the ancient stylistic tradition where the most powerful figure is portrayed as larger in scale.
