In untitled (#1), an antique doll head is positioned under a bell jar evoking a time when human body parts of people of color were studied and used to justify 19th-century racial theories of evolution. Positioned on the back opening, a small black baby-doll is nailed to a crucifix. On two interior walls of the wooden box form are pages from a turn-of-the-century text about correct forms of grammar.
