“This piece is a part of the Historic Jar Collection and references Bernini’s marble sculpture of the same name. While Bernini created an erotic scene to be housed in the Cornaro Chapel, Hodge seats the two women in a domestic setting signaled by the style of chair. Further, by replacing the angel figure with another woman, she highlights women’s capacity to spiritually enrich one another.”
