About the Iconoclast series:
An icon on an oval of beveled wood which recalls religious iconography. Hands are a focal point for the religious artwork of Christian, Buddhist, Hindu, and various other doctrines. This small piece is a relic to be cherished. Traditionally, the hands of women have been depicted engaged in so-called "women's work" which have also inspired this piece in theme and creation.
