Here She Comes

Description

Here She Comes is part of the series of women that are inspired on the fertile land of Bangladesh.

The idea of this sculpture comes from seed pods found near the Tea Gardens in Bangladesh. When the artists’ brother found it there, it was still closed. Once dried it opened and became a very interesting shape.

Petra took this fascinating form  as a starting point, developed it further and used the two parts separately. One part delves into the ground, the other part rices up as a woman moving towards her freedom.

Size part woman: 20 x 54 x 26 cm; size pod part: 12 x 44 x 22 cm
