Rocks eroded over millions of years at the mouth of a river, to the size and shape perfect for creating a Venus born on the shores of the Mediterranean. Stones strung on iron skin, consisting of scales of iron ripped tons of pressure.
Artist's comments:
Nourishment is necessary for survival, but where is the boundary between food and gluttony? When it stops being a thing to become another? The limit is very easy to overcome, it is very difficult to control the reptilian brain.

"The problem of contemporary sculpture and the garden is one which has rankled in my mind for years. It is usually resolved through a process of inversion-that is turning it into sculpture in the garden as against garden sculpture. By that I mean the sculptor takes over the garden as an open exhibition gallery, of which the focus is their creation, to which the world of nature merely provides the frame.The Idea that sculpture is a contributory element to an overall'mise en scene',in which, sometimes its role may be incedental rather than central, has been lost.In this we have seen the betrayall of the great tradition of garden sculpture, one which was unashamed at being decorative or delightful."
