Breadwinner

Silicate | 34x17x14cm | 5.5kg

“Breadwinner” sculpted and named by ROM joined TMMSC in October 2014 and is the eighth sculpture in ACJ#1. This Silicate medium piece is inspired by the real-life situation of many fathers in Africa, who are important providers or breadwinners in dual household families. The front presents a father carrying agricultural produce back to his family, with a child in the bottom half, who is happy that their father has come home. The straight lines at the back show stability and security, based on the belief that a father is a strong, individual constituent in the family.
