Woman With Child & Bowl 1 © Ian Scott ParkerThis woman with child & bowl sculpture sits in the riverside park at the west end of Springdale, Utah. The mass of sandstone has a powerful presence if you are receptive to such forces, and the faces with eyes closed in repose we read as oneness expressed with dignity. Like all art interpretation, commentary says more about the speaker than about the artworks. Our own preferences are for silent and meaningless art… and commentary, too.

Oh, what a day-to-day business life is.
