Spirit is the first piece of a Figurehead series. I like the notion of a figurehead attached at the very front of a ship that is leaving port for a journey, in search of truth and salvation. Spirit holds the secret of life and nature and her task is to take this secret to safety. On her journey she must face such challenges as navigating obscure and deep waters of greed and arrogance, disappearing and reappearing in and out of the colossal waves of a destructive storm of ignorance and denialism.

This piece embodies the importance and urgency, the struggle and uncertainties we face in saving our environment. We must be willing to take responsability and act together in spite of the colossal challenges ahead, steadfast into the storm.
