Sondra Sherman, Armor and Amor, 1995, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of Emily Sherby Levenson in memory of Sylvia Waldman Sacks, 2000.32A-D
Sondra Sherman balances Mars and Venus, war and love, male and female in Armor and Amor, a matched set of "his-and-hers" necklaces. The female pendant is a curvaceous crystal covered with a lacy network of pink stones. The male counterpart is a phallic stone covered in a silver pinstriped casing, evoking a business suit. Although the feminine pendant appears vulnerable, it is defended by the points that Sherman has emphasized in setting the stone.
