Arbitrium (Latin for Determination), stained glass mosaic sculpture, 4ft x 4ft, 2020 by Kasia Polkowska
The Moth demonstrates pure determination, always searching out light in darkness. Though, if in this quest, it stumbles upon a 'burning' brightness, the fragility of its body will succumb to it. The strength of the moth's faith is divine yet can bring upon a sudden melancholia when its vulnerability gets the best of it - the Moth reminds us to beware of 'Blind Faith'.
I created two sets of matching wings for the sculpture. Being that this is a public art sculpture, I wanted passerby's to be able to enjoy it from both directions.
These days I usually have my little assistant lending mommy a helping hand, while indulging in yummy treats of course =)
