Sculpture and drawings for The Cathedral of Childhood

So how do you get anyone to notice a sculpture that is only 16 inches tall?

You find more of the story to tell....

This sculpture started just the small sculpture with the title of "the little queen." I then had the idea of the queen surveying her realm, which also happens to be built of  children's wooden blocks. Combine that with my ongoing investigation of Romanesque art and the pedestal somehow has become a Romanesque cathedral. Click on the images to see an enlarged view.
So here are three thumbnail sketches showing how the building has evolved. More next post.
