Guardian and Guide

2018, 18″ x 54″ x 24″ Unique Cast Bronze with Patina and Sterling Silver

The Guardian watches over that which is important to her, she has her guide that scouts out what is beyond her view. These fish are precious beings that hold the possibilities for today and that of tomorrow.

The fish, the precious beings, and the guide are also a burden, as anything or anyone you care for creates a responsibility for you.  I echo this, casting them in sterling silver.
