In the Paleo Indian period, between 10,000 BC and 8,000 BC, the western side of Staten Island was a much higher and dryer place. We know that Lenape Indians occupied the area because they left their tools and high middens of clam and oyster shells behind.

Mars is full of water. Not liquid water like we see here on Earth, but water ice under the surface and at the bottom of craters. There is even evidence that there may be ice inside of caves on the Martian surface. Some of his works seem constrained, particularly the pleasant but tepid female torsos constructed from sculpted flower petals. A similar bronze torso covered in a honeycomb pattern seems almost prudish. The racier works are better, such as a stoneware piece in which a rumpled figure deprived of her head, arms, and shins is covered in a dark corrugated material (think of a wingless Nike of Samothrace dressed in charred crepe), with her breasts bright red and hanging out like a giant tongue.
