Miriam was Moses' sister. Miriam sang a victory song by the water after the crossing of the red sea - a song considered one of the oldest passages in the Bible. Some consider Miriam to be an ancient cult figure preceding Moses historically. I have tried to unite in this figure Miriam's sense of liberation, music, and the sea she has crossed. I cast this piece in stainless steel instead of bronze because it better reflects the color of water.
