The die is cast

Found objects in old clock case
$1450

Do you know who the figure represents? Nor do I.
Others might immediately recognise her as a Hindu goddess or a Malaysian wise woman or just a beautiful Balinese woman.
So much depends on where we grew up, on what our parents believed, what stories we were told.
I made the 'floor' from old dice, to represent the luck of which stories we were told as facts.
Our beliefs, our certainties ... so much depends.

Dale's studio can be found on Surf Highway, Taranaki, New Zealand
