Sally S. Fine, Minoan Reflection
2013 Copper, patina, aluminum, fiberglass, 72" x 28" x 26"

Minoan Reflection is based on two female figures over 3,000 years apart. The first is a Minoan Goddess from Crete, dated 1600 BC.  The second is Fine’s daughter, born 1986 AD. This copper-clad statue carries messages between the two women, continuing Fine's exploration of the female figure as an enduring symbol of fragile strength.

"The Contemporary Figure in Public Art"

Saturday Aug 10th 11am. Meet at the entrance to The Mary Baker Eddy Library, 200 Mass Ave and walk around the sculptures that are installed on the plaza and end at the bookstore, where the participants can purchase the catalog. The tour is free and open to the public.

Leslie Wilcox & Sally Fine both draw on the tradition of using the human form in their monumental outdoor works of art. Wilcox's figures animate the arbor of trees on Mass Ave and Fine's figure will catch the viewer by surprise by hiding in the portals of the Colonnade Building. Come and discover other works of art that seem to blend into their surroundings yet stand out with their vivid presence.

Update: Sylvia Herczeg, employee of the Christian Science Plaza, talks about the sculpture "Minoan Reflection" by Sally Fine, in this video. Minoan Reflection is one piece of a collection of art in the exhibit, Convergence, in Boston, Massachusetts. This exhibit is cosponsored by the Boston Sculptors Gallery and The First Church of Christ, Scientist. You can see the exhibit from May 1-October 31, 2013, at 210 Massachusetts Avenue in Boston's Back Bay.
