Shawn Morin is the Professor of Sculpture at Bowling Green State University (Ohio). He received his BFA in Sculpture from the University of Tampa (1983) and a MFA from the University of Georgia in Sculpture (1986).
In the artist’s words, “Conceptually speaking, this is what I would refer to as Two Witnesses and typically is interpreted (at least by me) as the two witnesses at the Temple in Jerusalem in the End Times (Moses and Elijah). An occasion where they are murdered and come back to life and they breathe fire to protect the temple.”
