concept for potential sculpture or painting?? But problems there regarding my sculpting skills.

Work would be like the Lady Justice, except the person would be obese – representative of wealthy (often western) nations, where the obesity rate is high due to a surplus of food and food culture. Holding a cow to represent food and the wealthy world’s control of this. The cow itself represents a control of massive amounts of land and water, both of which will be highly contested in the coming years. In the other hand is a water bottle to represent the fight for water rights in the face of climate change – but this could be swapped for a seed to represent the monopolization of agriculture and food resources by the wealthy.

Problem – is it too literal?
