Ollam Latin for Pot. This huge lichen covered storage jar holds promise - from the precious oils and goods it once contained, echoing stories of trade and cultures connecting. It is now quiet and contemplative but its silence and pause sings with voices from the past. Ollam and the keys are emerging from the its sintered bronze grey darkness, illuminating with glances of light.
Raw pigment, oil, sintered bronze powder and gesso on board in antique frame.
