“This piece is about the strength and permanence of love. The figure’s gesture proclaims, in an outward way, the happiness of being loved… and that love endures – it has, and always will be there.
“The etched rock echoes this idea of permanence and strength. Petroglyphs (etchings in stone) were ancient history’s graffiti – a way of mark-making that expressed feelings in a visual way. We value petroglyphs because they have endured for thousands of years. We treasure that which survives the test of time.
“So the whole piece communicates a love that is strong, sure and lasting.”
