abstract butterfly

Shadows reflected by candles

"I do not want to make a stone horse that is trying to and cannot smell the air. How lovely is the horse's sensitive nose, the dog's moving ears and deep eyes; but to me these are not stone forms and the love of them and the emotion can only be expressed in more abstract terms. I do not want to make a machine that cannot fulfill its esential purpose; but to make exactly the right relation of masses, a living thing in stone, to express my awareness and thought of these things." --Barbara Hepworth
