Female gallery visitor viewing one part of artist Fiona Hall's 18 piece installation titled All the King's Men. It is a landscape format photograph cropped to show the upper torso and head of the visitor on the right, with one of the sculptures that make up the installation on the left. The sculpture is of two human heads. Each head is slightly larger than a basketball and they are knitted from thin strips of green and khaki jungle camouflage material overlayed upon a wire frame. The heads have been joined together at their sides to form a conjoined two-headed work. The eyes, mouths and flaring nostrils, integrated into the knitted form, are wide open revealing the empty space within. Knitted ears curl shell-like from the sides of each head. Orange light filters into the form, created by plastic car-headlight-covers knitted into the top of each head. Two strips of fabric hang beneath the headed form. The visitor, looking up at the two-headed sculpture that is slightly above her head height, has glossy black hair, styled up on top of her head with a prominent fringe. She wears a black and white patterned collared jacket over a black t-shirt together with a black and silver bead necklace.
