Description A biomorphic representation of female anatomy
Caption This sculpture resides in a delightful park that offers an introduction to contemporary sculpture.

""In so much of Preminger's art, the duality of creation and the creator, Mother Nature and mothers, is also evoked by the use of clay formed into udders. An artist whose work celebrates the essence of woman. Preminger's creations, on display all over the world and throughout Israel, have always focused on the divine feminine, on the earth as mother and on God as a 'creatress' rather than a creator."
(By Meredith Price, from the artist's web site)

The title of the sculpture suggests lots of possibilities, among them the “Four Mothers Movement” that began in 1997 to protest Israeli participation in the war in Lebanon. That has a serious tone, while men may simply see the obvious, and have no idea why a woman would carve such a sculpture.
