Since December 1st is the 1st day of Advent, I gotta get a move on for this project! I decided to create and an Advent sculpture that captures a bit of Norway, my way 🙂
The figure is a representation of St. Sinneva who was martyred in a cave on the island of Selje which I visited this past summer. The candles will be suspended in a square wreath form and each will have the meaning of the candle set as a holder: Hope, Peace, Joy (pink), and Love.
As I am working on this, I will also begin to finish Ailey’s 4th Christmas sculpture as they are the same material as my Advent Saint: paper mache or paper clay. I think this may be where I settle for a bit in my art as a few Christmas gifts will come out of the session too! 🙂
