Commission piece - private collection - Vancouver Island
I had some fun with this one. It was commissioned by labour organizer who fought for equal pay in the unions for women back in the 80s and 90s. The sculpture is in recognition of an era of a movement of special women, the feminist activists of the 80’s and 90’s, and to the many women that have been influential in his life. I've embedded a number of symbols. She's looking to the left and has her weight on the left foot (his leftist politics). She has a 'Rosie the Riveter' headband on. Her belt is embroidered with a sheaf of wheat and roses (the suffragette anthem 'Bread and Roses') She has a money pouch on her belt (financial independence) and she's holding a gazing ball (she's got the whole world in her hand)
