Ma Metsi. 2017
Mother of Water. The water spirit, calm and tranquil like waves soothing a tropical beach. She can also be chaotic, like an enraged hurricane. She is the representation of the duality black woman are often confronted with. The notion of the crazy black woman is balanced by the strong calm of her face. She draws her power from her hair which is likened to water, The source not only of life, but the scale of her emotions. Water represents the vehicle and depth of her constant struggle.
