When I was a little girl, my aunt gave me a book called “Juanita” which I have forever cherished. The story was about a little Mexican girl who wanted to take her bird to have it blessed on a holy day. This piece was the first of my figurative sculptures and represents the soft sentiments of innocence that I hope never to lose, in life, or in my art. This piece is a "Palm Piece", small and meant to be held. 5.5 x 3.75 x 3.75, 2011 - ed. 50 There are only 5 pieces left in this edition.
