Work Overview

This work was written for Michael Sitsky a flute player and the nephew of the composer Larry Sitsky. It is a work that explores female sexuality through the rather grotesque, but intriguing female character the Sheela-na-gig, a Celtic symbol of female fertitility going back to the worship of the mother godess. Sheela-na-gig displays her vulva in the symbolization of birth - the origins of life - and in so doing, represents the intersection of heaven and earth, spirit and matter.
