Captured Waves encapsulates a signature Anne Faith Nicholls painting element: Painted, dimensional waves. A delicately made objét d’ arte, this piece symbolized the capture of a most powerful element, displayed in a distinguished, perfectly fitted, antique bell jar.
“Ancient and primal, the ocean is our mother of mothers, the Great Round within whose fertile precincts the first bold pioneers scuttled out upon the sand. For eons her “wild and clear call” has summoned poet and argonaut, contemplative and castaway to the “dark glory” of her nurturing, mysterious reaches.” -Book of Symbols, Reflections on Archetypal Images, TASCHEN
