Title of Liberty

Additional Info


Business major, BYU. Artist statement: "This piece is a ceramic sculpture representing a woman holding the Title of Liberty. In the Book of Mormon, the Title of Liberty is a physical representation of what Moroni and his 2,000 stripling warriors are fighting for. I wrote my own Title of Liberty for this piece, representing what I fight for: "In memory of my God, my sisters, my freedom, my education, and my creativity." Though a bit different from Moroni's solemn oath of protection, my Title of Liberty is just as personal, and just as powerful. The piece represents finding that fight and literally making it a part of you, which is seen in how the arm of the statue is the pole for the flag. The statue is so entwined with what she's fighting for that she becomes it, just as we should be. The statue is made of a white clay, hand sculpted (in my tiny dorm room) over the course of a few weeks. This piece is extremely personal to me. I see myself in that girl, partly because I used pictures of myself posing for reference, but also because I identify with her passion; from her defiant chin lifted in the air to the feminine strength in her pose. She represents my strength, my love, and my devotion to my God."
