I’ve had this African sculpture for a long time. Supposedly it represents a twin, so there is a missing companion. I’m a Gemini so there’s an attraction to this object plus it’s very beautiful. Occasionally, when I remember, I rub it with oil and it shines. It’s one of my power figures.
I used to think still life compositions as static, a grouping of unrelated objects. Perhaps because in school or art classes they usually were/are and so it was more a matter of Carl putting form and texture- but I find looking at objects that have meaning is more interesting to me, yet I have to admit, looking at things with interest and curiosity invests them with meaning.
