20. TWO WOMEN AT WAR
Please scroll down for description and statement
A large tree dominates an empty plain. In front of the trees stand two women facing one another in conflict. The woman on the left is severe, firm, implacable; the one on the right is soft, feminine, and has an air of self-indulgence. Between them an egg hangs suspended. A small, bright bird sits high up in the tree, watching.
A battle is being waged by two parts of the self. We are aware of the battlefield, but we are unaware of the issue; although it hangs in the balance, it is hidden. The small bird "stands aside in the battle," observing and waiting patiently for the conclusion. It may well be a long wait: the ego dies an ugly death. [SOLD]
