9"x6"x5" abaca, ammonite, enameled copper wire, ribbon, dried mud by Mattie O. Rose

Her pearly white dress
gossamer shivery grace
delicate and pliable as a cobweb
only her feet set upon rock
reveals her strength
The many-chambered quality
of her ammonite being
archives her experiences
and her dreams
the nautilus spiral
that shelters her womb
provides her a buoyant essence
and protects a great palace
where her children grow
Her life is a winding path of desire
beckoning her inward
she is rooted to Earth and sky
and the wandering staircase
that leads to the unknown
