Artist Statement:
Ma Mo Jewelry Design is , Maurice and Morgan. We recently moved our retail shop from Roosevelt after 16 years to a studio format in SoDo. Morgan hand carved the ring in wax and Maurice took it from there. Living in Seattle during the current time with the Covoid-19 stay home orders, we were shut out of our studio. I received the e-mail for the ring smack down and began to think. The inspiration of the ring was a ancient silver Drachma coin bearing the head of Athena. Athena personifies the human spirit; Beauty, Wisdom, and Bravery. The dialog around the virus was “this is a battle and we need to be armed and protected”. Shown here with her battle helmet up yet she could pull it down and be ready to fight. Athena was the Patroness of the arts. We as artist have to fight for our businesses and position here. We were inspired to join in the ring battle to help bring awareness and pay tribute to all the worriors out there. Fellow artist and front line Doctors, Nurses, and First Responder
