I have put this in 2 other forums that get little traffic, so I thought I would try it here. This piece is made from stiffened potato sacks, seed pods and wool weavers warp.

a strong broad vertical on the left,
interplaying with a rectangle on an angle, lying on its side,
surrounded by a circular mass,
covered with many small sperm

I do like the photo and the name, the object itself might conflict with my continuous conflict against dust - I think.
thanks for posting it here.

I'd like to see this picture either with more background, or with a black background, because it's hard to really see it. The texture is important I think to. With this picture, I love the idea
(who could NOT take a look at this!)
But it seems more like a conception pic, or the male female aspects/
the ball (egg) with the sperm encircling it.
However...it seems that it doesn't quite make a really strong statement,
and I think (remember- just my foolish little thoughts) it might be the media.
but a different picture might clear that up. Any chance of that?
TYou ehould definitely keep working with these materials- - they are so organic,
and could say a lot. I'm just not sure they say enough about the title.
Maybe another title?
What do you think?
