Very surrealistic! I wish I had some more informations on the meaning of this bird/angel/sculpture... I see the background much as a landscape.

She is proud, she is fertile, she is strong, she doesn't budge! She is beautiful and headstrong. She does what has to be done - always! She is optimistic and unique! In her opinion her world is wonderful! She sees the marvelous things around her, the big ones and the small ones, even the tiniest ones - every day! She gives in to sadness and cries! She gets up - head high! She never gives up!
She does not forget her past, lives in the present, is curious about the future!
She lives in each woman!

Oh, so poignant, so well well stated and such an intriguing abstraction. It is fascinating to me that your work is absent of language yet is nevertheless so full of words.

I wish I was more like this woman you write about, Yael! I love the form and colours in this work...you are so clever and know just where you're headed.

An interesting quilt, Yael. Studying it makes you think, and ask questions.
To me it looks feminin. Soft, strong and sharp at the same time.
Fascinating!!

Sehr außergewöhnlich und ganz toll!
Dein Gefühl für Formen und Farben ist einfach fantastisch. Das Ergebnis ist immer sehr ausdrucksstark und läßt jedem Betrachter die Freiheit, es für sich zu interpretieren. Dein Bild zeigt jedem das selbe Motiv und doch sieht nicht jeder das Gleiche darin.

Liebe Grüße von 2 B's

Einfach nur Wow!!! Du hast das Wesen ja schon sooo treffend beschrieben. Ich denke aber, dass Du vergessen hast ihre fruchtbare und mütterliche Seite zu erwähnen. Für mich sieht sie glücklich, sorglos, lässig und freudig schwanger aus.
Ich werde mich auf Die Suche in mir nach ihr machen.
Nachdenkliche und beeindruckte Grüße
