Short Statement

The original Cernunnos was a Celtic deity of a gentle reflective masculinity. Although my figure is a female version, adorned with sacred geometry, trees and planets, the original male Cernunnos was also a listener and meditator of nature, not a subduer. I had made this sculpture the summer that Roe vs. Wade was overturned. Facing this insanely bitter news, I was appealing to some sort of ancient logic where there is an infinite compassionate universe.
