The Caryatid
view large | next previous
This piece was envisioned during a tooth filling procedure in response to the dentists request for a fireplace mantle, which would have been held up by a pair of the caryatids. The commission did not materialize, but the carving got done anyway. The piece was later deconstructed with a network of abstract voids. The holes on the right side of the torso took on an association with flame, which became part of the genesis of the Goddess of Fire. Frivolity with Christmas balls led to the voids being filled with beach rocks. The present owner has the rocks removed.
