I was pleasantly surprised to have this semi-abstract relief sculpture returned to me this week. She has been gone for a few years. She had gotten lost in the shuffle of everyday life. To be honest, I had forgotten about her.
I made her quickly in an hour long workshop. Made from self-hardening clay, and then painted, I call this tiny piece that can fit in the palm of your hand, “Pregnant with Possibilities.”
Her most prominent features are the three yellow orbs, supported by folded, drapery-like structures accompanied by small wings. The main emphasis is the central orb, which is the belly.
The belly, symbolic of the universe, is in a state of constant flux. It holds magick, mystery, power and potential. Prominent, the belly is fully present and of the now.
At the top you find the head. Between the legs there is another orb, crowning and about to be released into the world, with all the magick it holds.
This relief sculpture of my inner-self, is about the power held inside. It is closely connected to my relationship to the Goddess, thus she is painted with glistening paints, to suggest the glow that comes from realizing the deeply spiritual state possible through a meaningful connection to the divine.
