Goddess of the SeaKesire
The Goddess of the Sea is a sculpture representing the beauty and the delicacy of the ocean but especially the corals. As a teenager, I used my artwork to link marine life and a woman’s life.
Inspired by Amphitrite, the wife of Poseidon and the queen of the sea, I wanted to show that a woman can be angelic and strong. The human figure was designed to demonstrate her balance and her elegance.
I used different shapes, colours, and materials to display the diversity of corals and their uniqueness. To create these shapes, I mainly used clay, but the dark red one near her feet and her arms is made up of flour and water cooked in boiling oil.
Marine atmosphere has been created with upcycled pebbles from my old aquarium, some sand from an old flowerpot, some volcanic rocks from a bracelet and an old piece of coral.
A piece of gold jewellery demonstrates the sparkles when the sun shines and reflects the sea and expresses that coral is the jewel of ocean.
Freedom is a right of every animal and human being. The little fish, on her left leg, is the representative of this need. No one should be denied freedom
