Virtues 2003  

 

Private Collection

During the Neo-Classical period of sculpture (late 1800s to the early 1900s) a favored subject matter was 3 female figures representing the cardinal virtues. During these troubling times I endeavored to set a mood for reflection on what those virtues have come to mean.

Thank you to Ollie of the Champlain Marble Quarry for providing these very rare and beautiful stones.
