Eric Higgs created Dignity for Planned Parenthood in Sarasota Florida. The marble sculpture is 8-feet tall, 2-feet wide and 2-feet deep. I asked Eric to tell me a little about the piece:
The common definition of “Dignity” is “the quality of being worthy of esteem or respect”. Created as a dignified feminine figure, this sculpture aims to evoke the pure essence of “Dignity” in the context of Planned Parenthood’s mission. The process of gaining “Dignity” results from the opportunity to make difficult decisions in a peaceful environment, supported with appropriate resources, and absent of moral judgment or guilt.
I discovered his work in The Guild Sourcebook of Architectural & Interior Art Vol. 20. Contact: To learn more about Eric’s work:
