Wisdom of the Pearl


This is a sculpture I did a long time ago showing a mermaid holding a pearl. She’s asking you, “Do you know how a pearl is made”? “It starts off with pain when a piece of sand gets caught inside the shell of the clam. In time the clam puts layers of love over that pain”. So the mermaid is asking you,” if you have any pain inside of you, what are you going to do with it”?
