: "... we have put up the latest carving by Eric Schweig. It is an exquisite piece of work, but, I'm afraid, out of the price range of most of us. It is accompanied by a brief statement from Eric. He says more will be on the way!"
: In response to e-mail questions; yes, Eric would be interested in displaying his masks in galleries. Efforts to that end have not yet materialized. Meanwhile, they remain on display via an Internet gallery ... you all know where that is!
: We hope to have more photos of other masks up soon, as Eric is working on them and has now arranged for professional photos to be taken of each mask.
: This particular "Adoption Mask" is different from the rest in that its inspiration is found both from Indonesian masks and Eric Schweig's own personal history.
: We'll post any updates as soon as we have any.
Thanks a LOT Elaine and Rich for the wonderful update on Eric's work!
That mask is so terribly intense, you can feel so much pain and need of freedom behind it!
I think Eric's work portrays not only the pain behind his/others adoption but all pains given by situations that we all lived/experimented in our lives, where you are as a prisoner in a cage and you cant excape from pain and desperation.
You need and want but ther's so little you can do.
You need to be very strong to overtake this, but you keep scars all life long and they teach you something everyday.
Thanks for your message Eric - thanks for being such a wonderful human being.
Hey Elaine, sto benissimo and took an important decision.
From next B-day I'll be 35 for ever ( I was SPLENDID at 35!!!)
Should I break the mirror? haha
