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.

"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."

Customer comment on 'Beautiful Washers (Standing Naked Girl Lady sculptures)' by Shaun Gagg
The sculptures arrived in the meantime and on weekend I brought them home to my private house/garden.

They arrived in a perfect condition and when I have opened them I was speechless Shaun, they look great.

I got the picture from you where I could see them before but in reality they look much more better !!! JJJ

I am really happy thank you so much that you made them for me.

They will get a perfect place in my garden ... [Read more]
