This piece is known as ‘Woman With Sticks’ The struggle of carrying sticks twice her size represents a woman battling impossible tasks handed within fairy tales. Her naked body represents the ‘eternal mother’ and Mueck has took a different outlook compared to other artists. She isn’t the social norm of beautiful or delicate, she is active, strong and independent showing real strength of our ‘eternal mother’.
