Overview

Goals

The Tangiers Art Association request for a sculpture for their waterfront park was successfully designed and completed on site.

Process

In a social and religious atmosphere where depictions of the human figure are shunned this figurative abstraction references the ubiquitous burka and chador garments.

Additional Information

A starling visual was seeing three burka clad women viewing the sculpture creating a soft mirror image of sculpture and viewers.
