"The Handless Maiden"

This work titled "The Handless Maiden" is a new direction. I am planning a series of seven shadow boxes that will tell the story about the handless maiden as told by author and Jungian psychologist Clarissa Pinkola Estes in her book Women Who Run With the Wolves. Each shadow box will house a removable wearable piece of jewelry. Here, the handless maiden is shown sucking juice from the pear tree that is bending down to nourish her. She is is a brooch that is cast in silver, the tree is cast in bronze and the rest of the shadow box is a collage of various media.
