Kepa - The Apostle







Assemblage represents St. Peter, the fisherman from Galilee. His Aramaic name "Kepa", which means rock, was given to him by Jesus. He was the very first pope and was crucified upside down.
In creating this assemblage I formed a wire spring and attached it on the back of the head. I've had this fascination with bobble heads and decided to somehow incorporate it. It's my weird way of visualizing a bobbing head.
The only thing lacking on this piece is the name Kepa, which I would like to place at the very top.
Hope to have that done soon.

Awesome piece Cat! I love the idea of a bobble head associated with a "religious" piece. Something very appropriate about that!
