“Our life is a whirlwind of chaos today
Twirling around in an awful display.

We all get caught up when rolling the dice,
Dealing with things that cause too much strife.

When industry started bursting through the town,
Causing growth to the rich, the poor abound.

Yet any the man who’s humble and true,
Still finds love for his dog when he steals his shoe.

Rich battleships sail through our murky waters,
In wars poor men fight for wives, sons and daughters.

When seeking fine clothing, cars and money,
You’ll find the GO down, ain’t all that funny.

Keep peace in your heart and let love swell.
If you can’t do that, the RUN LIKE HELL!

Paul Lotz

The sculpture depicted in the image is “Run of Luck” by artist Paul Lotz, which can be found in the Marcus Ashley Gallery. This sculpture creatively juxtaposes the playfulness of dice with the human form, featuring a pair of legs in mid-stride, emerging from two oversized dice. The legs are cast in bronze with a lustrous gold finish, suggesting motion and vitality, while the dice themselves maintain a matte, off-white finish, reminiscent of the actual gaming object.

The bright red shoes add a striking contrast to the golden hue of the legs and the neutral tones of the dice, drawing the eye to the supposed ‘forward motion’ of the figure. This piece can be seen as a metaphor for chance and the human journey, blending whimsy with the elegance of bronze sculpture.

With its mix of luck symbolism and dynamic form, “Run of Luck” might appeal to collectors interested in themes of chance, gaming, or those looking for a unique conversation piece. Its presence in the gallery’s collection highlights an appreciation for imaginative and thought-provoking works.
