Woman of the Sun

~ Woman of the Sunflower ~
Brass, NBS Small


"Woman of the Sunflower" is my own title for a recent button acquisition. It is an NBS (National Button Society) size small, about 1/2" across. It is concave, made of one piece gilded brass. I do wish the button had been a medium, as described!

This would be even more incredible in a size large, but the photographer did this button justice. It's a fine example of the art of button making, even stamped and molded and mass produced. I respond to the design of the button, and the strength and wisdom in the woman's face.

  2. Hi Julie, I don't know why (yes, I do!), she reminds me of some of the women in your poems, and she reminds me of a woman in a story by a friend of mine: strong, wise, weathered, and triumpant.
