The sixth of seven bronze sculptures created by artist, Gerald Griffin for his "Paradigm Shift series. The artworks in this series were created as visual interpretations of original poems written by the artist over a period of twenty five years.
This piece features a Black woman standing with one leg raised in an iconic yoga position, which pays homage to the legacy of the Black Bodhidharma of Asian folklore. She clutches her breasts as a sign of her power to control, with the understanding of her unique roles within the human family. That of the soul bearer, the nurturer and the protector.
