Two Doves

by J.R. Eason

Size: 1/2 Life size
Medium: Bronze
Edition Size: 15

The Ladies of the Night, in the early West, were often, individually, referred to as a “Soiled Dove”. When a woman was not married and not a Teacher, Prostitution was often the only choice for one’s sustenance. I believe that most often these girls were ‘pure’ in heart, mentally separating their body from their Soul.
I created this bronze to honor the women of the early West who found themselves ‘trapped’ through circumstance….but remained ‘free’ within their Soul, thus – “Two Doves”.
