Rings, Freud, and the Universe.
The parts are all cut out! Yay!!
Now it's just a matter of filling in the rough spots with wood filler and sanding them smooth.
These are the ring parts and the work bench where they get sanded. Below is the spine part with the two balancing parts that hang from the spine inside the rings. It must be hard to imagine now but soon it will be clear. What is important is that the two hanging parts almost touch. As a reference to the famous Michaelangelo painting. The flowing lines are also a reference to renaissance painting. Consider the flow of the robes and gowns depicted in so many religious paintings. These curves not only speak to that but I feel they come from a place so deeply rooted in our relationship to the earth and the original code of creation.
Did someone mention Freud?
