Description: The story behind the D Knots: “My youngest son was struggling with drug addiction so I decided to make three knots in his honor, to represent my frustration: D Knot #1, D Knot #2 and D Knot #3. The first D Knot was carved out of a 400-pound piece of watermelon marble, a very hard stone. My newer works reflect universal themes of struggle.” —Robin Antar
