Commissioned for the opening of OCMA's new building, Of Many Waters... (2022) is a 24-foot wide, 16-foot high multimedia outdoor sculpture that functions as a combination and continuation of Biggers' Chimera, Shimmer, and Codex series. A hybrid figure, the sculpture combines an archetype of a European reclining male figure with a 19th-century Baule double-face mask composed of metal sequins.
