Quoth the Raven - Mighty Magic Hips


"...These hips are free hips. They don't like to be held back..."

Lucille Clifton, Homage To My Hips


The second piece in this series is now finished. The quote above is used at the bottom of the skirt. With this piece, I concentrated on echoing the bird shape and the human shape, as with the previous piece. I am finding more similarities than I ever dreamed I would. In fact, there are a few more works already physically planned out. Until then...
