The White Feather

‘Curation’ – ‘The White Feather’

This angelic but determined little figure in her oyster shell skirt and tiny oyster shell bonnet is striding purposefully brandishing a white feather. One of her arms – and the ‘ground’ beneath her feet – is made of bone.

White feathers are symbolic of cowardice, danger and impeding doom but can also indicate the presence of a guardian angel. This little creature is definitely on a mission. Harbinger of Death or Angel of Mercy? You decide.
