Mother's Horns (hips)

Cornua Matrem is a piece made out of a blanket that lined my crib when I was just born. My mother saved it and gave it to me. When I touched this object I felt compelled to create from it, unaware of the energetic resonance in objects yet. What came to form was this mask. One of the most difficult, emotionally purging, and charged pieces I have ever made.
