Artist's description:

I started this project with the aim of producing a sculpture that would depict the roots of life. A woman's body is a complex mystery and with out women there would be no life.
Like a tree is planted in the soil so is the seed planted in a woman's womb.
The womb is what creates us and we are nurtured there until we come alive and are nourished by our mothers breast until we can feed from what the world has to offer us. I have depicted the head being a tree with roots running down through the neck, breasts and down into the womb of the female body, thus the title , Roots of Life.

This felt like an important work for me, to be able to in some form describe my love for my mother is a thing of great value and I put all that love into this sculpture.

Materials used:

Reinforced concrete with stainless steel rods, coated with five layers of Brass Cold Cast. The tree is made from Brass wire and the base is Granite.
