Artist, Danette Landry, attended art school in Paris, and currently has a studio in Paris in addition to both California and New York. Generally, Landry identifies each of her totem sculptures with a gender. The feminine totems depict resilience and strength, through a complex stacking of very small geometric plates. The masculine totems portray a physical and emotional weight, bearing a similarity to geological elements, with smooth eroded lines and rock-like features. This “Link of Humanity” scultpure is part of her "Wounded Men" and "Reconstructed Women" series, however, instead of depicting a female or male form, it is of a neutral gender and depicts circumstances and repetition of thought and emotion.
