Medusa - Includes 3" black stand, total height is 8" high.
Medusa is named for the hair she once had. When I first sculpted her, she had a fantastic head of hair that curled around her, almost like snakes. I loved how they made her look regal. However, before she made it into the kiln to be bisque fired, her hair started to fall off. Most of it was because I had made errors in attaching her hair, and as a result it started to fall off as soon as I started to paint it. Rather than scrap her, I looked closely at her big eyes and bald head…and felt she was even stronger. Now she feels empowered by her change, rather than gaining power by changing others. She is my homage to all those who have gone through chemotherapy, as well as those who visit infusion centers, just like I do, to treat their illnesses. I stand with you.
