Magical things happen in life. While displaying my art at a winery, I met a First Nation's man who told me, "my work speaks". He shared with me personal glimpses of his life. I was then compelled intuitively to sculpt a face with its mouth open. When he saw the piece, he told me I had sculpted the Sun Mask and the open mouth meant the sharing of one's soul to another. Water in most cultures represents life. I saw him rising above turbulent water to freedom and new beginnings in life.
