SOARING SPIRIT GODDESS
Often times, I’m inspired to sculpt because of some object that I’ve come across in my treasure hunts. For example, I found an old necklace at an antique dealers shop. It was from India. It has jangles and a very old patina. I fell in love with it instantly and knew I wanted to create a tall standing Goddess befitting of it. Soaring Spirit was born. Her face spoke to me as I sculpted her. She seemed to be telling me of her struggle with becoming her own person. She had given her life to others and now it was time for her to begin anew.

A voice sounded..at first it seemed to be a Murmur. Quietly it expressed the thought.. "Take your power now." As the days passed, it became increasingly Louder until it became as a roar, vibrating her Entire being.. "Take your power now.!" She Began to reexamine her life. So much time Had passed, and in all that time she had Remained spiritually deaf and blind. She had Not heard..She had not seen...and the voice Continued speaking to her..resonating Throughout every cell in her body..electrifying To the inner core of her soul until she had no choice but to listen.."Take your power now." It continued. "For you have given your life To others and in that giving, you have emptied Yourself. It is only when you are empty that you Can truly be full and free to live".....

Her embellishments include the old necklace from India, and beautiful upholstery cloth. She is priced at $325.00.
