Cool save the tata's

It is sculpture when you paint on a form... What about boobies for a form. That is right To benefit my girlfriend who is going through breast cancer treatments a couple of our friends got together and we painted boobs in celebration of boobs. we got a little recognition and i thought you would enjoy it.

Re: save the tata's

Tribute to my sister Gina who died of breast cancer. She lost all her hair from Chemo therapy. She is holding a son who was still born.

Re: save the tata's

Claude, I'm speechless and sorry.. What a tribute and the grain and form is pure art itself..

I'll volunteer to paint breasts all day long if it helps, hell, make it all week long. I'll even finger paint them. Two good friends had breast cancer and double mastectomy's with reconstruction and it's sad, but they are both well today.. Dad's second wife also died from it only a year after they were married..

Re: save the tata's

Marblecutter, that's one of the most moving statues I've ever seen. The way she's holding the stillborn child is personal and universal at the same time. Sorry about your loss, it's a wonderful sculpture to remember your sister.
Would you post a larger image of the full size work?

Re: save the tata's

your sculpture made me cry... i do alot of that lately. My partner had a double mastecomy in November. She is 33 years old but she will survive. You think we have it rough and then someone else opens you up and you feel lucky. I love the sculpture, very powerful. Thanks for sharing.

on another note i both got painted and was painted. I got flowers and bees on my breasts. get it... boo "bees"

Re: save the tata's

My sister Gina was only 42 when she died. She was teaching in public school in Brooklyn. She told me about the cancer on the Circle Line boat as we a were looking at the World Trade Center, the statue of Liberty and passing under all the bridges connected to Manhattan. Little did I know that it would have been the last moment we spent together. That was 1984 while I was attending college in Texas.
The Title of the sculpture is L'Offrande de Pierre (Stone offering). In French, the word pierre is stone and also the a common name in the Bible that is Peter. When God said, upon this rock will be built My church. Her still born son I named Peter. I was at school when he was born at home and was shocked to learn that he was not alive. The dauntless task was when she asked me burry him. I was not yet 15. I wrote the name Pierre upon the fresh cement marker and covered it with the soil that was dug out. The year was 1971 in a city called Port-au-Prince.

Re: save the tata's

Maybe all that happened to you was needed to carve such beautiful piece of art. I just keep looking at it. Thank you.

Funny you mentioned that, it has crossed my mind several times these past days and I don't even have to look at it, it's already burned in deep.
