A joint piece com posed of three individual pieces. Contrary to what appearances may suggest the white head was not cast. Instead, tailor-cut pieces of Japanese Hoji paper were cut and pieced together to create the delicate form of a female head. This soft slender shape contrasts with the geometric hieratic heads in the front.
Using the same methods, the both halves are made from authentic Egyptian papyrus. Balance is achieved through contrast as the strong masculine lines frame the female head. Color is also a unifying element as the rich, warm hue of the papyrus complements the painted cyan surface of the water, while altogether framed by the white value of the piece.
The dynamic positioning of the three pieces illustrates the contradicting nature of the inner subconscious. This in turn allows imagination to flourish - a concept embodied in the origami cranes taking flight from the platform of the mind.
