Artist statement:
I refer to this piece as both “The Sententials” and “The Gatekeepers”.  They mean keepers of the light, the guardians of the peace, the keepers the guardians of treasures and things we hold dear to our hearts. They protect. I believe that our souls, our
selves are our own sentential, gatekeeper, or guardian of who we are.  This piece represents those concepts for me.
