Sculpture #2 PISTILS
Metal-reinforced fiberglass, airbrushed-painted with automotive lacquer paints
"Inspired by the female, ovule-bearing organ of a flower, including the stigma, style and ovary, this five-piece sculpture set not only depicts grace, flair and beauty but also the real burden of being a woman. Realities facing women of today cannot be ignored for it is comparable to a flower that suffers and is affected by the absence of a responsible bee."JOEL EUGENIO E. FERRARIS, 2008
From childhood until old age women's experiences and role are different from that of men. Despite their seemingly delicate nature their strength lies in their being keepers at home and to guide the house.
This sculpture painted in attractive colors is meant to admire and appreciate women in a different viewpoint as it reminds us how they are so different from men in terms of fashion and beauty consciousness among other traits. But as pistils are situated in the midst of and protected by petals so is a woman's role as daughter, sister, wife, child-bearer, mother or grandma that needs understanding, support and protection of a loyal and responsible man.
It would be nice for women young and old to have their photos taken while they gracefully pose in front of or surrounded by these sculpture pieces.
