"Patience"
14 x 6 x 6 inches, ceramic, acrylic, silver/opal/emerald jewelry


An image of a woman with a snake in her hair might erroneously bring to mind the Greek myth of Medusa. It's an easy mistake. However, Medusa not only had several snakes on her head instead of hair, she was an evil monster, cursed to turn living creatures to stone should they gaze into her angry eyes.

The sculpture is named for the artist's appreciation of women facing adversity. Many women - including the sculptor's mother, to whom this piece is dedicated - deal with a variable lack of respect their entire lives. These lifelong hardships are symbolized by the aqua snake.

The expression of Patience is rendered as sad yet amused, peaceful yet concerned. From the left side, her face has a slight smile, from the right side, a mild frown. Her weary eyes are calm and still under a furrowed brow. Left empty, they symbolize the act of "crying her eyes out"; they no longer exist. She transcends dramatic outward emotion and instead exhibits an inward calm, the very essence of patience. "Patience" symbolizes all women who face adversity with strength and grace.
