Cercando Consolazione ( Seeking Solace)

The calla lily, which represents resurrection, stands out in black against the ring around it. This flower can grow almost anywhere and I was attracted to its ability to be resilient in harsh environments. This sculpture was created to acknowledge the survivorship of grief of a loved and offer hope. The red calla lily, in the hand of the figure, symbolizes courage. Seeking solace during comes from the courage we find within ourselves to live again
