Sculpture – Mother of Queens

For the past 1-1/2 year, I have been concentrating on sculpture.  Much of what I have done is virtually impossible to photograph, but I will publish some of my recent work that is more accessible to a camera.  The subjects of the first posts are pieces inspired by Chess, made  with the advice and support of  mentors at Al Green Sculpture Studio in Toronto

Mother of Queens-8033102‘Mother of Queens’, on my Flickr site, was the prototype for a complete collection of chess pieces.  She was in that sense the mother of them all, and she was the inspiration for the Queen of the set.

At the moment, she stands at the mouth of the harbour of Humber Bay, Toronto.  Is she a guardian, or is she a waiting soul remembering someone lost?  Maybe both; none of us is simple, and the longer we are around the more tangled is our gestalt until, perhaps, we free ourselves of our complexities.  Regardless, she shows her age, her experience, her wisdom.

Later, you will meet her progeny, freshly minted and looking, perhaps, as she did at one time.
