Link to this object

An irreverent play on Rodin’s The Thinker, Schaechter’s Lucifer Poops embodies the artist’s subversive humor and wit. In her hands, even Lucifer is subject to ignoble truths. Everyone poops, even the prince of darkness.

The framing device of using small, seemingly unrelated yet detailed images to surround the main image is one the artist borrowed from medieval manuscript paintings. The border images here come from different and disparate sources. On the right-hand side, the dog with a pie slice for its head comes from a book the artist had when she was younger on how to take care of one’s braces.
