Mythic Dream

Mythic Dream

Shaqe Kalaj. Mythic Dream, 2006.

Description:
Mythic Dream represents the awareness of being set free from that which binds. Women have been bound by physical objects such as corsets and bows. After many years, this state of being bound has been so deeply ingrained in the psyche that it takes much courage to break free. Mythic Dream is a symbol of that transformation. It is the unseen made visible. It is through awareness that we break our chains.
