Interview with Sculptor Jay Schaan, November 2018:
Q: Why did you create the piece?
A: The quest for knowledge is to obtain meaning or information by interpreting letters and symbols found within the bounds of written pages. Your quest can never start too soon or too late. So sit down, grab a book and expand your knowledge.
