“Abassi” – Shona Lyon
Abassi, bronze by Shona Lyon
68cm (Height) x 24cm (Width) x 24cm (Depth)
Another brilliant figurative piece by Mt Eden sculptress Shona Lyon. [Check out the “Aphrodite” posted here the other day.] In Central African mythology, Abassi was the creator … a jealous god who put the first men on earth, created in his own image naturally, and then became worried they might match him.
