Sculpture II – The Woman of Est

The Woman of Est
C. 2009. (origin date, 12th Century; unearthed, Deptford High Street)

Considered lost in the 12th Century, the icon, demi-god and – to a particular sect – godhead of a female worshipping offshoot of Islam, the IIAL here presents the woman restored.

Huge details has been found in the texts of the Est sect on the figure-representation of The Woman. These can be viewed in the IIAL archives on request.

Whether or not the Est sect was correct in their presumption that The Woman represented all archetypal female beauty throughout history (herstory), present, and future, what is clear is that the specific materials defined for usage (here fully restored and used as instructed), these materials are beautiful.
