Guardians are the protectors of life. Shells, animal bones, seed pods, gave me added inspiration to the shields we see in old civilizations. The female shield, like a leaf, in these Guardians, has a gently curved back, shielding the vulnerable inner front side. The markings around her stem like form are like the river of life’s energy flowing around her essence. The male shield is also gently curved towards its inner side, the front. Its head reaches out, the observer, watching and waiting, a strong form unyielding.
