'Warrior Women' are a series of women's torsos, made from terracotta clay and hand painted after firing. Each torso was created with an individual woman's character in mind and this is why each piece is made with different colours, shapes and designs.
The designs for the 'Warrior women' torsos depicted in this series are not taken from original breast plates of women who went to war and fought on battle grounds. These 'Warrior Women' used their great strengths of characters, subtly from the domestic settings of their homes. Some of the 'Warrior Women' helped towards changing the status quo, concerning the ascribed roles of women in their generation. Others helped to shape and enlighten the minds of those who came into contact with them at home. A few of these women had ideas and ways of living which were before their time; others were more of their time. But all of these women have marked a time in my life and a place in my heart.
