Visual artist and writer, Christine Palamidessi’s work is inspired by Mediterranean history and geography, Hindu and Christian mythology and graphic patterns based on the pressure of insides meeting outsides. Her special medium is paper and story, which she often folds and molds into human shapes.
Indoor Papier Mache Breasts Torso Chest of a mermaid sculpture statue for Inside Interior display for sale by The American Sculptress Christine Palamidessi who writes about this Unique.... "Aphrodite is a fish woman, a mermaid embodying male and female shapes. The colourful scene inside the sculpture harkens back to Eve, the Biblical temptress. Adam’s face is seen near the tail looking towards Eve, wondering if she still loves him. The story reflects Aphrodite’s priority to pleasure over duty. Sculpture is mounted on a revolving base.
A beautiful 28 year-old Brazilian woman modeled for this signature Aphrodite sculpture. She became my muse, modeling for more than one sculpture and while doing so she asked questions, told stories. In-process, in my studio, the stories inspired this work and “being in pleasure” while working. My eyes opened to Aphrodite’s energy: pure seeing, pure sensation. I experienced this Greek Goddess as a temptress who is vain, selfish; a priestess who is lusty and full of glamour. When Heaven tears away from Earth, that is Aphrodite’s moment. The Water parts and she rises up from the sea. Note: the sculpture is displayed on a stem which joins a revolving base, so you can place it on a shelf or corner table and turn the sculpture. I also have a non-revolving base; if that display mode interests you, please contact me.

"All my life as an artist I have asked myself: What pushes me continually to make sculpture? I have found the answer. art is an action against death. It is a denial of death. " Jacques Lipchitz 1891-1973
I must say I am thrilled with my `Goose Girl` by Lucy Poett. It looks charming in my garden and is greatly admired. I will indeed have a look on your web page and see if I can be tempted again ! ! Kind Regards
