APHRODITE ...

like a wisp of a cloud


Copyright 2004 & 2006 By Heidrick & Holmes





LIKE A WISP OF A CLOUD SHE WAS SO TRANSPARENT

THAT WE COULD SEE STRAIGHT THROUGH HER

AND INTO THE MOST BEAUTIFUL OF SOULS.


LIKE A WISP OF A CLOUD SO LIGHT AND SO NATURAL

SO PLAYFUL AND SO INNOCENT

WITH NO MORE THAN A CHILD'S GOALS.


LIKE A WISP OF A CLOUD .....

HERE FOR A MOMENT

AND ... THEN

LIKE A WISP OF A CLOUD

GONE

Sweet Dreams, Aphrodite

Rest Easy

On a Wisp Of a Cloud!




ONE OF A KIND

20TH CENTURY

VENUS RISING

NORMA-JEANE BAKER 

MARILYN WAS BURIED

WITH HER FAVORITE FLOWERS

PINK TEA CUP ROSES

THEY SUITED HER PERFECTLY

THESE ROSES ARE MADE OF CLAY

AND

CAN BE REARRANGED

ON THE SHELL

OR

EVEN REMOVED

 

ONE OF A KIND

MARILYN CAN BE REMOVED FROM HER SHELL

IT IS SUGGESTED THAT YOU ONLY TOUCH HER ARMS

 

 

AS YOU PROBABLY KNOW

ALL OF OUR MARILYN MONROE

REPAINTS AND SCULPTURES

ARE LISTED AS

20TH CENTURY VENUS

ARTWORK

THIS ONE TOOK MUCH PLANNING

 

STANDING ALONE OUT OF HER SHELL

SHE STANDS

APPROX.  9 1/4" TALL

THE BOUQUET SHE HOLDS

IS ALSO MADE OF CLAY AND WIRES

AND

REAL BABY'S BREATH

IF YOU LOOK CLOSELY

YOU CAN SEE THE CUBIC ZIRCONIAS

ON THE SCULPTED FABRIC SHE IS HOLDING

WHICH SHE ALSO HAS IN HER HAIR

 

SHE'S A REAL SPARKLER!

  

SHE HAS MORE THAN HUNDREDS

OF

 CUBIC ZIRCONIA

IN HER HAIR AND ON THE FABRIC

SO, IF YOU WERE TO PLACE HER ON A REVOLVING STAND

INSIDE A CABINET, OF COURSE,

THE EFFECT WOULD BE

SINFULICIOUS 

THE CLAY LEAVES AND ROSES LOOK MUCH BETTER IN PERSON!

THERE IS ALSO A STARFISH ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF HER HEAD

THERE WAS SUPPOSE TO BE A SMALL GLASS FISH

BUT IT BECAME LOST

HOWEVER

IF IT TURNS UP I WILL PLACE IT

ON THE SHELL

AS WAS ORIGINALLY PLANNED

 

THE  SCULPTED SHELL IS QUITE SPECIAL

BECAUSE IT CONTAINS

GENUINE HAWAIIAN GREEN SAND

WHICH IS

OLIVINE

AND

IS FOUND AT THE SOUTHERN TIP

OF THE BIG ISLAND OF HAWAII

WHICH IS THE MOST SOUTHERN POINT

OF THE UNITED STATES

ALSO

THERE IS ONE LOVELY

PEARL

RESTING AT HER FOOT

YES

A REAL PEARL

HERE IS A PICTURE LOOKING DOWN

AT THE SHELL

 

THE WHITE AREA IS WHERE MARILYN STANDS

A FEW OF THE LEAVES HAVE CZs ON THEM

TO REPRESENT SPLASHES OF WATER FROM THE SEA

REMEMBER

VENUS WAS RISING OUT OF THE SEA

HOW TOTALLY ROMANTIC

I WILL TELL YOU SOMETHING

AND

MOST PEOPLE KNOW

THAT I AM VERY HONEST

ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES

SELLING, MY ART,

AND

MY ANGEL,

THIS PIECE IS

ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL

I AM IN AWE OF THIS ONE

WITH A SEAL OF APPROVAL

BY BRANDON HEIDRICK

WHO QUESTIONED WHY

HER HAIR WASN'T FULLER

I EXPLAINED

HOW MANY WOMEN RISE OUT OF THE OCEAN

WITH A HEAD OF FULL/DRY HAIR

I MENTION THAT JUST IN CASE

YOU ALSO WONDER WHY

 

ACTUALLY

KNOWING BRANDON SO WELL

HE HAS ACQUIRED

SOME OF MY OVER THE TOP

SENSE OF HUMOR

AND

I'M SURPRISED HE DIDN'T

SOME BACK WITH

**********

HOW MANY WOMEN

HAVE I EVER SEEN

COME OUT OF THE OCEAN

COVERED IN DIAMONDS?!

**********

OH WELL

HE'S STILL IN TRAINING!

 

ALSO

THE IDEA OF USING CZ IN HER HAIR

AND

ON THE SCULPTED FABRIC

TO GIVE IT THAT WET OCEAN SPRAY LOOK

GLISTENING IN THE SUN

AND

I WANTED HER TO LOOK

AS RADIANT AS POSSIBLE

AFTERAL

THE ORIGINAL VENUS RISING STATUE

IS A MASTERFUL WORK OF ART

AND

MARILYN HAD ALOT

TO MEASURE UP TO!

I ALSO USED THE EARLY PHOTOS OF

MARILYN MONROE

FROM THAT FAMOUS BEACH SHOOT

WHEN HER HAIR WAS FIRST BLEACHED BLONDE

FOR HER PART IN

LADIES OF THE CHORUS! 

    

OF COURSE

THE ONE PERSON I ALWAYS GIVE CREDIT TO

IS THOSE PAIR OF UNSEEN HANDS

THAT GUIDE ME SO WONDERFULLY

MY ANGEL

I'M NOT AS NEARLY TALENTED

WHEN MY ANGEL IS NOT HERE

TO GUIDE MY HANDS

AND

MY NEED FOR APPROVAL

FROM MY FRIEND

BRANDON!

 

HERE COMES THE LAST PICTURE

FROM THE BACK OF THE PIECE

 

I LOVE HOW THIS PHOTO CAME OUT!

THE SHELL MEASURES

APPROX. 7 3/4" wide X  7" deep  X   5 3/4" tall in back

THIS PEICE MUST BE DISPLAYED

UNDER A GLASS DOME

OR IN A SIMILAR GLASS BOX FOR A DOLL

BECAUSE THE PIECE CAN NOT BE DUSTED

OR WASHED

DUE TO THE CUBIC ZIRCONIA AND ROSES

 

One Of A Kind

By LadyShalene

AND

AS WITH ALL OUR

REPAINT/REMODELS/SCULPTURES

THIS SHY LITTLE ORPHAN

IS LOOKING FOR A HOME

WHERE SHE WILL BE CHERISHED

AND ALWAYS KEPT FROM HARM

YOU GOT ANY ROOM AT YOUR PLACE?

 

THE COMPLETE PIECE STANDS APPROX. 11" TALL

AND

WOULDN'T SHE MAKE A WONDERFUL GIFT?

 

TO RESOLVE ANY INSURING PROBLMS FOR THIS PIECE

I MAY SHIP THE TWO PIECES IN SEPARATE BOXES

IF SHIPPING INTERNATIONALLY.

into a delightful experience.

 

YES, I GIVE A DAMN TOO!
