Transmutation 1

Bronze, 17 x 53cm



Artist Statement

“Transmutation 1, a vertical bust of my muse truly went through a strange metamorphosis or transmutation. This work is beautifully amphibious alike to Ichthys, a potent symbol of belief of two intersecting arcs resembling a fish. Ichthy, was adopted by early Christians as a symbol of shared belief of those victimised and persecuted by the Romans beliefs – a symbol that could swim undetected through Roman nets. This sculpture forms a symbol of hope in a world much in need of change.”
