Beautifully hand carved from bronze metal clay, this skull representation presents her as the source of life.The truth of soul lies beyond the realm of the mind.
“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field.
I'll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass the world is too full to talk about.” Rumi
This piece symbolizes the "death" of our constructed beliefs which allows the purity of the Soul to shine. It was built around a wonderful Labradorite stone ("stone of the Spirits") with flashes that incorporate the green of the field along with the blue and yellow sunny skies.
I really wanted to portray the taboo of death in a way that would remove the element of fear, which usually accompanies the subject. Depicting the skull as a source for the living, adorning her with the easily recognizable feminine characteristics and a little touch of whimsy (humor), I believe removes the darkness of the subject.
The fact that this piece is the winner of a jewelry design challenge, confirms that she really is a celebration of life.
Bringing a sense of union, of unity, of connection with all, this pendant talisman is to open the door to the acceptance of life and all it has to present.
