Carole Feuerman's 'Hannah' goes off the beaten path of the other resin swimmers, preferring athletic competition over leisurely floating. Adorned with an 'Olympic Cascade Aquatics' swim cap and a purple-strapped suit, the sculpture bears a solemn countenance of focused ambition.
This sculpture's purpose is not simply to look beautiful or stand as a muse. 'Hannah' embodies dedication and preparation, athletic prowess and power. The figure emulates qualities much like her creator, a tenacious woman aiming straight for the top of her game. Consider 'Hannah' as ode to anyone with the grit and focus of an olympic competitor, regardless of their occupation.
