Song of Thanksgiving 2020 | mixed media | 36 x 19 x 28 cm
The artwork is an automata depiction of Hannah’s prayer and her dedication of Samuel to God. Through a rotating motion, the sculpture illustrates Hannah’s lowering and lifting of her hands as well as the descending and ascending of Samuel. Lowering of hands displays Hannah’s gesture in prayer and leaving her hands open to receive Samuel. While lifting of hands shows Hannah’s posture in worship and dedication of Samuel unto God. The flowers mirror the condition of her heart as she journeys along God. Through this interaction, I hope to encourage people to ignite their faith in believing for God’s promises.
