WPA reflects on inland and coastal erosion. This crab pot washed up on Hunting Island, SC, references one of the most rapidly declining beach fronts on the eastern seaboard.
The wax objects are castings from the fruit of a Maclura Pomifera tree or commonly known as an Osage Orange. It was the most widely used tree in the “Great Plains” WPA project in an effort to combat wind erosion in the 1940’s Dust Bowl.
