In my Ancient Warrior Torso series, the word "ancient" naturally brings historical references to mind. The visual quality of being ancient, to me, can also mean something lost and then found. Lessons that were learned ... something buried or destroyed and then rebuilt.
The idea that women are the warriors in the world and are in all different types of relationships, and any tragedy that has affected their lives, and they have conquered ... gives them a voice. They see their own story behind the torso.
I'd like to see all the torsos in one space: all different shapes, sizes, and heights representing a totality of the woman as the warrior archetype.
