In unlikely combinations, Max Garett presents an anachronistic history through compiling symbols and icons from multiple cultures into objects. Using formal similarities to connect a wide variety of iconographic figures, Garett pairs characters from ancient mythologies with those from a newer history. These improbable objects invoke nostalgia for an era that never existed.
