The innocent form of the circle and staff, and the action of “threading the needle,” has its obvious sexual connotations for the mature viewer. I have seen people blush at the site of it. However, through the eyes of a child, the windy swirl maintains its innocence while the phallic form tantalizingly beckons to the less naive. Love’s Divine explores the sexual and interpersonal through the basic masculine and feminine forms that hint toward petals and pistil.
It is the circle of life bringing forth the new. From a foundation of one it splits into two, each reaching skyward in separate directions. Neither are perfect and they initially spread apart, but as they grow and extend, they bend together to interact and embrace each other. Encircling and penetrating, two become one, separate but together. Each plays its own role to bring balance and harmony to the finished form.
