Jennifer Thoreson, Multidisciplinary Artist

In each hand, the pregnant woman holds a fetus attached to an umbilical cord.  Each fetus was created by needle-felting grey churro wool.  During the time I was working on Testament, my husband and I were struggling with infertility, and were struggling to conceive our first baby.  This sculpture is an illustration of that battle, and the spiritual struggle that accompanied it.  Testament was first exhibited in October of 2014.  In February of 2015, we were overjoyed to learn of the conception of our baby boy, who was born the following November.
