Object Description
Imagery of pastel blue flowers and circular shapes in warm grays and pale yellows, with a background of honeycombs, create a collage-like effect. A plumb bob, a small leaded weight typically used in architecture to determine verticality, appears in the center of the piece. The significance of this ubiquitous symbol is its shape; it is reminiscent of both the prehistoric figure of the Goddess (as was typically carved in stone), and the body of a bee, another symbol that fascinates Macko.
