Rather than a traditional cast, Carole Feuerman developed a process of pouring molten metals, in this case bronze and aluminum, directly into molds. Feuerman allows her intuition and sense of play to be her guide during this process. While the figures in 'Zeus and Hera II' represent the idealized forms of ancient civilizations, the interplay of the characters is an important element of this work. Zeus looks away, his attention always roaming, while Hera half- embraces him, eager to be noticed.
