About Edelweiss
The sculptures of Edelweiss are a tribute to the force of nature in connection with Mother Earth. The sculptor’s love of art is rooted in her home, Valencia, but also incorporates the Castilian influence of Toledo, from her mother, and Basque elements contributed by her father. Readings, particularly in history, also inform Edelweiss’ work, as do her travels to Oriental, Celtic, and Egyptian cultures—to name a few. Her sculptures draw from pagan, Classical, Egyptian, and mythological traditions to create women who exemplify the majestic, powerful, and dignified aspects of the feminine. Reminiscent of women-centered Minoan art, Edelweiss does not shy away from the intimacy of the female form, but revels in its beauty. At the same time, she incorporates images from nature, such as a cascade of flowers representing hair.

Edelweiss is inspired by the eternal cycle of life, so often associated with women because of their ability to produce life, and the triskelion symbol, representing energy and the evocation of fire, water, and nature.
