We have gone through periods of intense waiting - perhaps waiting to graduate from school, get a job or get married. It was the universal emotions associated with waiting that inspired Nnamdi Okonkwo to create this elegant sculpture. The women also symbolize the abundance of life and the largeness of soul. In the fluid lines, simple shapes and general arrangement, the artist finds his ideal of order, balance and beauty.

Dedicated November 2005
