The word sublunary was presented to me in a conversation with a friend. She had the word tattooed onto her arm. The meaning of the word is basically, 'between the Moon and Earth'. Shortly after that conversation, my mother of 93 years, passed away. In contemplating Life and Death, I felt the importance of Dancing and Celebrating while still in this earthly dimension. This sculpture is the vision of sublunary's meaning.
