Life Cycle; Bounty of Joy and Sorrow

Christine Mikowski's avatar Christine Mikowski

This unfinished, lifesize sculpture stands over 57" tall and approximately 30" wide. She is made of paper mache` and wears a very dimensional gown of flora and fauna made from crushed glass and wire. The effect is similar to cloisonne`. She holds a sculpted bird with a functioning twirling ballerina inside. This mixed media sculpture follows no rules and mixes not only materials but techniques and methods. Paint, paper, glass, wire and tons of time have gone into this sculpture. She is representational of the point in a woman's life where she is fully self aware and understanding of life's cycles; what has passed and what is still to come.
