wobbly vulnerability

#3 the psalm project

This, the third of 45 drawings that were made to launch the project gives me a number of messages.
A smallness and wobbly vulnerability resonated with my own sense of being. The simple decorated top could read as a shield and/or a reflection, both references would work for me and my reading of the psalms.

The wire and card model below followed a series of small development drawings. The legs to be in iron rod with riveted joints and the top, perhaps wood with enamel colours.

The change in proportions is unsatisfactory, there is more work to do, any possible likeness to an ironing board must be eradicated!
Its anthropomorphic reference is intended and acceptable.
