The Janus head was the ancient Roman guardian of gateways and of all thresholds. He was the God of change and transitions watching with two faces, past & future, internal & external, above & below, known & unknown and finally the passage of life to death, and death to liberation. It is also the gateway of the heart.
The head is set in surrender on an altar of initiation. Within the tension of opposites a new third is magically born. Here we see this new birth poised above the Janus head surging into freedom and abundance.

I found enormous excitement in the making of this carving where the spaces between became as important as the form for it is space that gives tension and meaning to the silence of flight.

‘Secret’ - that small pinpoint of recall, something that is kept deep within and separate from the outside world and sometimes even from oneself.
THE BEGINNING & THE END
The miracle of birth to the fining down to the end of Life.
It's mass feels intensely satisfying in its pregnant fullness, where all things are
born out of the receptive creative feminine principle, while at the same time
the form also suggests the male phallus. Within this androgyny, offered from
the embedded stillness of the inner body, a pristine seminal river merges male and female.
