This sculpture is based off the idea that some women in India are married out of betrothal. Before they are married off, the man will meet will all women who were promised him, spends 15 minutes with each, and then decides which he will marry...the women have no say-so

thank you! I appreciate you actually reading my explanation for this one...without it, this wouldn't make much sense! yes, the henna represents the marriage part of the story behind the piece

hey i really love this! i can tell by both your words and the art that you actually FEEL for the women. this sculpture is so full of emotion, i love it. i especially like how the hand has drawings on it, i know that in india one of the things the women do for special occasions is henna, a stain design. i really love it!

 Thank you...and you have the right idea about the helplessness, that is what this piece is all about. It wasn't too hard to make, I actually enjoyed it. I'm sure you can do something similar, just come up with a solid idea, and roll with it! :)

This is really good. I wish I could make something like this. it's like she's reaching out of a vortex of helplessness.

Practice is like an introduction in a book - Plain boring and easy to skip
A Creation is like the story that slowly drags you in- amazing
Not reading the intro is like giving up on part of the book
Not practicing is like destroying your creation

Oh that is so sad. The Sculpture is beautiful though.
