Prompt: A sculpture about our chosen sacred body parts.

I chose a uterus as a sacred body part. It can be many things at once, and different things to many people. But there is no denying that it holds weight – not limited to the physical weight of when a fetus is embraced, but also in psychological aspects as it demands constant attention. I wanted this piece to have heft while being soft and imitating feminine curves. It is strong and soft, light and heavy, a lot of things at once.
