Project Description

A caryatid (Greek: Καρυάτις, plural: Καρυάτιδες) is a sculpted female figure that serves as an architectural support via a load bearing entablature that rests upon her head.

As pillars of the earth bearing the weight of world structure upon their heads, the Caryatids are symbols of strong feminine nature.

Standing tall, they emerge from the “drain” that  cultural belief systems have imposed upon them. Each Caryatid in this trio represents a characteristic of the feminine self.
