‘Caritate‘ by Sue Brelade (SOLD)
I named this sculpture ‘Caritate‘ which is the Latin for charity. In creating this work I sought to embody the idea of charity in the form of a god from ancient mythology. The face is androgynous as charity has no gender and no bounds. The symbol on the forehead signifies both charity and love. Caritate reminds us that charity is as much about who we are as it is about how we act.
‘Caritate‘ is formed from bisque fired clay which has been hand painted and stands approx. 18″ high. (click on image to enlarge)
