Good artworks are ambiguous and open ended, and how they are experienced will depend on the personal experience, knowledge and cultural background that individuals approach them with. I have been around the Everyone sculptures for so long and seen them in every different stage of construction that when people ask why they have multiple arms, it simply seems like an odd question, and it is hard for me to imagine the response of someone seeing them for the first time. It is also hard to imagine how they would be experienced by someone from a quite different culture, with a different set of beliefs and a different understanding of the nature of art. Whilst individual experiences will differ, most will agree that these works have an almost majestic presence, a sort of charisma, and that they are imbued with dignity and pathos.
