Sculpture description:
A Big Black Ceramic Garden Sculpture of Egyptian Goddess Princess with young Baby or Infant For Outdoors Outside. Slab built with hollow construction. High Stoneware fired with Billie`s own unique process of stirling silver inlay. The side panels have over 1400 3mm ceramic glazed tiles, painstakingly inlaid to create a QR code which the viewer can scan with their mobile phone. This connects the viewer with the sculpture`s own Facebook page and debates on breastfeeding trends. The sculpture is part of a pair, the other representing maternity/pregnancy. Both are priced indiviually. A Visually Superb and Tecnologically Sophisticated Contemporary Sculpture Ideal for Inside Indoors For Interior Display
Artist's comments:
Explores motherhood, a theme that has been expressed through sculpture by humans since the beginning of civilisation, but a subject today that seems to have been pushed aside by education, career aspirations and financial constraints This work is the result of questioning today?s rejection of breast-feeding. 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.
