for a blowup view

the Shadow Tales:

the handless maiden


24″H x 16″W x 16″D

A poor bargain is made

when you don’t know your worth,

And you give away more than you were given at birth.

And this bargain takes root before you give it much thought;

till you cringe with remorse when you see what you’ve bought.

But from the wound grows a knowing that is part of the plan.

Although while you endure it you may not understand

that in a bargain with darkness lies a glimmer of light,

for the wound is the price paid

for a new kind of sight.
