Based on ancient sculptures of European Mother Goddesses, this figure is so abstract that it becomes a symbol. Thus, she embodies strength, pro-creation, and the nurturing body from which incessant forms of life emerge.

Parts of the body inessential for procreation have been made smaller, of  left away altogether:  for instance the head, the feet, the arms and hands. Yet the middle area of the body – the womb, the hips, the stomach are increased in size and importance.

The theme is fecundity both literally and as a symbol of  other forms of creativity.

Sculpturally, I was most  interested in two contrasting formal elements: of small and large size (head and hips) and of volume and roundness versus flatness or pointedness
