Adamaris (from the Gift of Water series)

Donna Jean Mayne's avatar Donna Jean Mayne

Adamaris (artist copy) by Donna Jean Mayne. Finding inspiration in the exquisite grace of the human form, Donna's style is strongly influenced by tranquil imagery of the Neo-classical era. However, her work is motivated by a more modern day concern for the fragility of nature. Her first series of figures titled, “Dono dell'acqua” (Gift of Water), grew out of her volunteer work as a safe-water advocate. Each figure acts as a steward of the water as they perform the simple act of caressing this life force with outstretched fingers or toes. Adamaris was the first in this series to be cast in bronze.
