Hold to the Rod, the Iron Rod
This "poofy guy," as Christensen calls him, represents human foibles and failings. His many layers of fancy clothing make him almost spherical, restricting movement and progression. In this painting, he is so burdened with "stuff" that he cannot reach up to hold to the rod above his head for fear of losing any of the material possessions he has accumulated throughout his life.
