Every morning, as I stumble into the bathroom, this women positioned there makes me smile.
Why is she holding her breasts?
Is she also contemplating her lifestyle after turning 40?
Edwin, my husband purchased this wooden sculpture more then 10 years ago in Conakry, Guinea
Is she presenting her breasts to the viewer as a West African fertility figure on perhaps in a welcoming gesture?
All I know is that when I wake up in the morning and see her,
I celebrate being a women!
Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen” ~ Leonardo da Vinci
