Description:

Figurative/surreal sculpture of a European folklore witch.  A pointing machine was utilized to copy the clay maquette on a 1:1 ratio.

Artist Intention:

The origin of the word night'mare' is to be visited by a nocturnal entity (Maere or Mora) during the night.

This piece represents the flowing black linen I observed during a sleep paralysis episode, which resulted in the feeling of dread.   My encounter with Mora inspired me to create a tangible reminder to face your fears, and use that primitive emotion to compel you to a positive path.
