by Suze Rotolo - her Artist Statement - "RELIQUARY: Things I Carry. A reliquary is a container where relics are kept for contemplation. I made my reliquary in the form of a necklace and it contains the story of my life which I am destined to carry.
Skeleton of mother and baby, who both died during birth. My mother's mother died giving birth to her 8 th child so I guess her skeleton must look like this because the baby died inside of her. How very sad for my Mom to grow up without a mother.
