This piece began on St. Brigid’s Day (Feb 1) with the intention it honor the abbess who heralds spring and aids farmers. The handmade stone texture contains gathered wheat stalks, a nod to traditional St. Brigid Crosses woven of reeds. It has acrylic with oxidized iron to symbolize the strength of the earth. Prairie limestone honors local land spirits. I used snowmelt to represent a change of season. Burnt Sienna pigment represents the fertile soil and harkens to a spring robin breast. The very structural thick texture applied to the corners is symbolic of the four seasons and reminds us be faithful at all times.
Sold to a lovely family who loves the land.
