Artist's comments:
This work is the result of questioning today?s decline of young planned motherhood. It is one half of a pair of sculptures, priced individually.
Princess Tootee sits with quiet Egyptian-like authority as befits a deity worthy of worship. However, using the notion of ancient artifacts as a vehicle to consider the decay of maternity and motherhood parallels Princess Tootee with that of a forgotten civilization.
Synthesizing the latest digital communication technology within the traditional craft of mosaics brings this work into the contemporary world. Deciphering the QR code with a mobile phone invites the viewer to be part of the creative process and is a step forward in changing the attitudes towards motherhood.
