The Goddess within . . .
This is the second Aphrodite floor lamp I’ve made. The first one broke, disintergrated, unappreciated after many years and not enough care. I noticed the gap left by her. I missed her. So I made another that’s better, stronger, more appreciated and very much loved.
Originally she was one of three lamps. The others were, Ares and Heaphustus. The collection was concerned with the exploits of these three characthers in Greek Mythology.
To switch the light at the bottom on/off, grab her and push down. The light at the top remains on constantly while connected to the mains. Made in acrylic and metal. The lower light is produced by two 11w compact fluorescent lamps. Warm white lamps of course. The light at the top is red neon. Height 1m 95.
I was looking for my Goddess and realized she is the anima. What had prevented me from her was the intervention of the negative Warrior archetype prevalent in the West, that I’ve been at odds with my entire life. The Goddess Hero is a reconnection with her and a shift towards a more balanced sense of being, a more conscious place to inhabit. Aphrodite is postmodern design; icon, index, sign.
Availability . . .
Aphrodite Hero is handmade, she’s a one-off and very precious. I would be willing to let her go to the right home. Contact me about this if you are interested.
