The Thinking Behind The Work ....
Like most of my work this sculpture developed in the making. I wanted to show women strong in mind and yet feminine, in controle and birth. The machine like fish with a cockerel head held in tight grip under her arm is symbolic of man's sexuality and she's in controle of the future generation both under her arm and in her tummy. Her helmet is her confidence and protection with engraved design of a butterfly from birth to death. In viewing this work I would like to hope the viewer will have the impression of the Venetian ladies of the 15th century then the sculpture plays on the mind.
