These 12 porcelain, small-scale sculptures are the work of local artist Jo Hart, and each tells its own story. She says there's a narrative to each piece that she wants the viewer to interpret for themselves
Each sculpture has a number on it, which represents a particular age in a woman's life. With this, Hart is trying to break down stereotypes and start a discussion about the emphasis placed on youth in our culture
The project started when Hart began to notice a change in how she was treated by strangers, friends and family, then discussing her experiences with friends of various ages
Eventually, Hart plans to increase the scale of this project, making a sculpture for every age from 18-90
