Fear Less

Elizabeth Laul Healey's avatar Elizabeth Laul Healey

I've always believed that fear and worrying have similarities to a rocking chair - - it can keep you occupied but it gets you nowhere. This sculpture is about not simply trying to be fearless, but to actually fear less. We have so many fears but many of them are unfounded like fear of "the other" or fear of dying, neither of which is helpful to living a happy life or to enjoying the moment. The structure over the face on the head is a combination between antlers and wings serving as protection, courage and freedom etc. Fear Less is made of Italian glass tiles & Smalti, mirrors plus cedar wood, foam, grout and a Gucci watch which is set at 11:11 which is a time that I pray every day and I send out positive energy to the world. The circles represent the Circle of Life which I started when my mom died and my daughter was born within just a few months of each other.
