"Protection 2" Brass Sculpture limited edition
Protection (No. 2) 2021 - Brass, Timber
This artwork is hand-welded by Melissa, and she collected the natural timber from the forest in the shape of an anatomical heart.
THE MEANING: "I protected my little heart for so long.
I locked it away after all the hurt.
But then there was no love.
It was a dark and lonely place.
Only through learning to heal my past,
my heart unravelled into the softness of love.
Now my heart has a golden protection around it,
that lets love and light in."
