Shona Nunan

2015

bronze

edition of 8

99 x 86 x 32 cm

A theme in Nunan’s work for many years, the Guardians were at first inspired from travels with her artist father when she was a young girl, through the outback of Australia. Discoveries of caves and their sacred painted entities guarding the entrances to these caves, stayed with her as important symbols of protection and safety.

These Earth Guardian forms have evolved and been inspired by shields both African and New Guinean, by beautiful finds of shells and seed pods on sticks, leaves and feathers. They are a pair, male and female, representing the opposite strengths and unity of night and day, conscious and unconscious.
