Sculptures represent the continuation of unbounded, unconditional generational love. The mother sculpture is pregnant and about to welcome another daughter into the family and the continuing cycle of life.
In Magna Grecia, Saint Barbara with her long Egyptian earrings and exquisite necklace, was an internationally famed miracle-working saint. She protected those who prayed to her from bites of noxious animals, thunder and lightning, jaundice (thought to be caused by rainbows), and sudden death.
Saint Barbara Blue is the saint's blissful blue avatar, perhaps a bit like Krishna, or a sentient extraterrestrial, or perhaps a sister to Na'vi. In my artist's eye she is a time traveler and a culture traveler who is the color of a cloudless summer day.
