"15,000 & MORE" - On display from February 12, 2021

Artist: Connie DK Lane


15,000 & MORE is a memorial tribute to the lives lost from the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in California. The concept is based upon Chinese ancestral worship of deceased relatives and family members with a special ceremony. This ceremony requires burning a mixture of gold and silver joss papers (ghost money) as an offering to the deceased. The joss papers are folded before being burnt to pay tribute to the afterlife. A mixture of silver and gold ingots differentiates the deaths of males and females from the coronavirus. 15,000 & MORE will be on display in the Central Library foyer in February 2021.
