Warrior Women Artists
Still On the trail of the women warriors ....I just discovered this sculpture -- made by California sculptor, Jason (Jessie) Emerson Herron (1900-1984).
(She'd collaborated on the multi-piece "Power of Water" monument in Los Angeles with Armenian sculptor, Henry Lion, who was the teacher of Apache sculptor, Armando Baeza who shares his many opinions on the Aesthetics-L listserv. -- that's how I found her)
I wonder.... was the above piece meant to sit on the floor ? It seems to belong up in a niche --- perhaps in the lobby of an art deco movie theatre ?
But the web doesn't have much on Ms. Herron -- beyond the above suffering figure.
Well... she seems to have specialized in female figures -- and she lived a long time --where are all the others ?
Oops -- here's one more that Marly found -- so far, this is my favorite -- and I might even be convinced this relief was excavated from a lost civilization in central Asia.
