Much of Max Hymes's work suggests a use but this is ritualistic or
shamanistic rather than domestic.  A mixture of materials and painstaking
precision decoration implies an obsessive glorification of that which the object
represents or celebrates.  Familiar motifs taken from nature seek to consider
our understanding of how we represent other living things in relation to
ourselves.
