Stairway to heaven
‘Stairway to Heaven’ , or Stairway to Eternity. On the stairway sits an angel ; she seems to be frozen – in time..
Height : 41 cm. Length : 28cm. Base : 20 x 20 cm.
For this creation, I reflected upon the concept of ‘time’. What is time? Is it mere a countdown to eternity? In eternity, time does not exist..
Time ends where (the stairway to) eternity (or heaven) begins ; the stairway to Eternity begins where time ends..
I made the angel out of selfhardening clay La Doll and Premix. I made her clothes out of natural materials – coton and silk – hardened with Paverpol. I made her hair out of braided strands of coton, hardened with Paverpol and decorated with little satin knots of ribbons and pearls. She has little wings of feather, hardened and painted with Acrylics. Her eyes are hand-painted.
I placed the wooden miniature stairway on a wooden base. I decorated it with lace, hardened and painted it with Acrylics. Stairway and wooden base were then put on a base of blue stone.
