This sculpture is titled after Circe, the sorceress of Greek mythology who turned Odysseus’s men into pigs. The misshapen head looks like a joint of meat with wires and nails protruding from it. It is also unmistakeably reminiscent of a brutalised phallus and may reflect Butler’s attitude towards women and his perception of their power over men.
