Catalogue Note

This work is likely the first work in which the artist employed the found object, selecting a stuffed deer head and catapulting his mature oeuvre. Additionally, the title fuses the city of Little Rock, Arkansas, a site of integration unrest in 1957 and Eagle Rock, a town in the Los Angeles area.
