Precious Ones
Jane Pierce, Two of Diamonds
Tina Mion
Jane and Franklin Pierce had three sons. One month before Franklin’s 1853 inauguration, they lost their last one, 12-year-old Bennie, in a train accident before their eyes. Jane believed this tragedy to be God’s way of providing her husband more time to devote to the Presidency. For the next 2 years, Jane refused to come down from the second story of the White House, where she spent her days writing letters of apology to Bennie.
Jane kept a box with locks of hair of all her dead children. She called the locks of hair her “precious ones.” My painting of Jane is how I imagined she might have looked — unable to sleep, pacing the White House with her precious ones.
—Tina Mion’s First Ladies series is so interesting!!

Just a preview of a new sculpture, it will probably contain, in excess of, 30,000 pieces. I wanted to make this piece for quite a few years with all of the remaining fish castings from my “Something Fishy” series, and now with the birth of my first child, I get to complete it.

Artist Martin Sati has created some portraits by piecing numerous cups of food and vegetable items intricately such that they form a face.
