POWER WITHOUT SACRIFICE                     Power Without Sacrifice, cape back detail                

Inspiration came from the feather capes of the Hawaiian royalty. Add the Maori kings and the women who chanted power into the capes, and the mask makers of Bali who believe their creations have souls. By donning a mask, a performer takes on its spirit. The title refers to the fact that no birds had to die for their beauty or ours.   This piece was first shown at the Cahoon Museum of American Art and later at the New Zealand Wearable Art Awards. .
