This rare abstract piece designed by Geoffrey embodies the versatility he possesses as a sculptor. Not limited merely to realism, the unconventional elements in the design of this piece give you a peek into his creative capabilities. Mother Ocean is unique not only in its design, but also in that it embodies the hybridization of the naturalistic with that of the transcendent. Soaring into the sky, a flawlessly crafted whale tail erupts from the sturdy base consisting of a uniquely crafted circle hook, inspired by the design of the indigenous Maori people of New Zealand. The voluptuous nature of the design holds connotations of femininity and fertility, while the patina, with its pastel hues of blue, slate grey and frothy white, are reminiscent of the churning sea. To the Maori, whales symbolize protection and harmony, while the circle hook is representative of strength, prosperity, and provision. Therefore, Mother Ocean embodies the marriage of delicate beauty with intimidating strength.

Happy New Year!

- Geoffrey
