Meaningful visual and symbolic charge in this sculpture among the most recent works by Douglas Camp. The figure exudes confidence, seeming strong and empowered. In the meantime, Cupid is lying on the ground, the bow on the ground and the arrow in the hand of the Kalabari figure. A work in harmony with the sculptress’s style propels the urge to take control of our lives.
