Raising kids I found that I could have all the facts needed to carefully make a wise thoughtout life decision and still be unsure what road to take. I remember searching the Internet for facts and still not having an obvious path. When this is the case I learned to listen to my heart to make the right choice. This sculpture depicts a man taking a moment to listen, think and feel with his heart. He is relying on his primal instinct as opposed to his cerebral cortex. He is relying on the wisdom of his years. This piece is "listening to my heart".
He has a man bun which I think gives him a primal look. His head is extended up but tilted to one side. His chin points to his heart and his hand is covering his heart. His eyes are just sockets giving him the look of having his eyes closed as he connects with his primal instinct - his heart.
He has a buddy who is still in the kiln.
I will probably put a glaze wash on him next week.
