“Hunger Moon, 18′ diameter, 8″ height” is the ninth sculpture in my Moon series, celebrating the names given to the full moons by indigenous peoples of North America.
Hunger Moon is associated with February’s full Moon. At that time of the year, hunting and gathering would have been severely limited due to the cold and snow.
My interpretation shows an outstretched hand cradling the northern polar area of the earth as it pierces a basket illusion representing the top of a saguaro cactus.
This piece will have its inaugural reveal Friday March 11 at the Tubac Open Studio Tour. I will be located with 5 other artists at 2364 Camino Esplendido, Tubac, AZ.
