Sumi sculpture by Marilyn is Neolithic inspired and is being well received by everyone who lays eyes on these.
Sumi e Sculpture, Zen style, fired-clay with black glaze, of the “Sacred Feminine” series by Marilyn Wells, inspired by Neolithic hand carvings. I call this Sumi e, as it is black as ink.
Nothing is more pure than the ancient Neolithic figures unearthed, housed now in museums, unsigned by forgotten artists. I find a heart connection with each artist whose work I am drawn to. I feel like we are touching hands across the centuries.
Life may not be a straight timeline. I am more inclined to believe God’s world is a circle, as the ancient Celts believed, according to John O’Donohue. I am closing the circle of time by coming back and joining hands with creators from these ancient, prehistoric times.
