The Veil of Isis

The Veil of Isis

Nancy Worthington. The Veil of Isis, 1978.

Description:
This sculpture represents the birth, death and rebirth of women in our culture. The main body represents a casket/cradle incorporating drawings and 3D objects suggesting subconscious images of the metamorphosis of rebirth of the female. If the viewer approaches and touches the sculpture, the casket/cradle begins to gently move--reminiscent of the breath of life.
