Description

A Subtlety, also known as the Marvelous Sugar Baby, is a sculpture that depicts a woman with African features in the shape of a sphinx. The sculpture was created by artist, Kara Walker. A Subtlety is surrounded by 15 other smaller sculptures, blackamoors, that serve as attendants. A Subtlety was intentionally created to recognize the slaves that were forcefully used for benefit of the sugar industry. The sculpture has a white finish and is covered in sugar. A Subtlety is only wearing a kerchief and earrings. A Subtlety was installed in the Domino Sugar Refinery in Brooklyn, New York from May through July of 2014.

Sculpture is a tangible art form, giving life to ideas through three-dimensional objects. Unlike flat paintings, sculptures occupy space, letting viewers interact from various angles. They can be made from diverse materials like clay, metal, stone, or wood.
