Persephone as Kore emerges from the underworld and brings spring with her. I will hold a mask making class in November, based on mythology.
Madár is the Hungarian equivalent of ‘bird’. In the Carpathian Basin bird is seen as a powerful symbol of freedom that has inspired many wonderful pieces of art and music. Brancusi was inspired by the folk tales and the symbolic magic bird, “pasarea maiastra” when he created his wonderful sculpture of the same name and another one, Bird in Space.
I hope to create more than one “madár” in the following months. I like the biomorphic approach very much, but am also thinking about using elements of Hungarian needlework.
I have tried something new on the finish, and am very happy with the looks.
This is the last piece I made in preparation for a class I am teaching at Station Gallery.
