Sumi e Sculpture, Zen style, “Bird Goddess”- by Marilyn Wells
Sumi e Sculpture, Zen style, fired-clay original with black glaze, of the “Sacred Feminine” series by Marilyn Wells, inspired by Neolithic hand carvings. I call this Sumi e, as it is black as ink.
"Bird Goddess" represents a sect that had great admiration for the freedom and tenacity of birds, calling on their powers to soar to ultimate heights.
Nothing is more pure than the ancient Neolithic figures that have been found and unearthed, housed now in museums, unsigned by forgotten artists. I find a heart connection with each artist whose work I am drawn to. I feel like we are touching hands across the centuries.
Life may not be a straight timeline. I am more inclined to believe God’s world is a circle, as the ancient Celts believed, according to John O’Donohue. I am closing the circle of time by coming back and joining hands with creators from these ancient, prehistoric times.
These are high fired clay ceramics, glazed in black. Each piece is signed and marked by the artist.
This piece is 9.5” high by approximately 3.5” across at widest point. Base is not Included.
Padded “feet” are positioned on the bottom to protect your fine furniture. These may easily be removed.
