Montgomery explores symbolic items from both religious and spiritual realms and to discover their true relevance. He’s forever on the hunt for preloved ‘Mary’ statues—a common icon for the christian faith, believed to offer guidance and support on the path to life after death. He also hunts crystals, interested in the knowledge and power they’re said to possess, plus their ideological relevance to those on a more spiritual side of the fence. This particular piece combines both of those aspects, and comes with an artist's signature to boot.
