The Moth Mother
Dusty Wings dance towards the light
From her flesh onto the moon
Her intentions warm and bright
Nurturing soul of the cocoon
An art doll bust sculpture made of clay, cloth, paper cut out moths, dried flowers and mohair.
The Moth Mother has been made almost entirely out of clay, her chest is a cavity filled with dried flowers. From it, six paper moths suspended from wire, fly off into the night, in search for the moon.
Her arms are soft, her hands made of clay.
She wears a wig made of deep brown mohair, covering one half of her face,
She has only one eye, with which she guards her moth children closely
She measures approx. 14" by 9" inches
