28”H x 9”D x 10”W | 71cmH x 22cmD x 25cmW

This sculpture interprets Aestas the Goddess of Summer's bounty and her annual return to the earth. It depicts the face of a woman her eyes are closed and her chin is longing for a loving caress. Her elongated neck leads to her lips and cheeks in anticipation of an awakening. Like a wild bouquet, flowers bloom all over her head and neck depicting joy and a renewal.


Symbolically this sculpture represents the miracle of transformation. In her endless wisdom, Nature shows us that all things change, and seasons are an example of this undeniable rule of life.
