Watching as my son was getting older, and knowing it was time to trust the guidance of others and let go, I created this sculpture. For me, the seed pods represent my son growing up and the adult is his father, with his arms wide. The boat is ready to set sail. The surrounding world contains hidden 'wishbones' symbolizing my wishes for him for a safe journey ( and, a small ladder, if he ever needs to get out, or come home!)

Materials: grapevine, palm leaf,  bamboo thread, silk fabric, clay, bones, seedpods, fabric, shark egg cases)
