This piece is understandably not for everyone. My hope is that with a little bit of explanation, however, it will be understood and appreciated. I created this piece as a form of social commentary. In it, we see a vagina, representing femininity, and penis, representing masculinity. In our society, masculinity tends to be more highly regarded than femininity. In my opinion, this should not be the case. Womanhood, for me, is synonymous with strength, creation, and beauty. We tend to regard things that we consider feminine fragile. In truth, women are capable of immense strength. The birthing process, for women, is something no man will truly understand. It's a painful process that would put most men to tears. Beyond that, every month women go through the repetitive cycle of menstruation with fewer complaints than most of my fellow men do when they can't find the TV remote. I felt womanhood should be celebrated so I cast it in bronze. Manhood, on the other hand, needed to be put into a more realistic perspective than society tends to exhibit. Manhood is represented with a less valuable, weaker, and less glorified material. It still has beauty but is not revered above womanhood. I also made it a point to give it an average length. The measurement of a man should not be done in inches; but rather, actions. Both pieces are mounted to identical bases so that they can viewed comparably.
