Fury by artist Rod Moorhead.
Inspired by the Roman Furies, the Greek Eumenides (see Aeschylus) who were the avengers of last resort. With a nod to the Nike of Samathrace — and a dash of runway model thrown in for good measure.

About the artist:
Rod Moorhead began his career as a potter, in the late 1980’s his interests turned to ceramic sculpture, which evolved into an interest in bronze and stone. He has created many public art sculptures including the sculpture of James Meredith for the Civil Rights Monument at the University of Mississippi and The Storytellers, the limestone sculpture of Eudora Welty, William Faulkner and Richard Wright in Jackson, MS.
His first love remains small-scale ceramic sculpture, such as the Furies series for which he received the Visual Arts Award from the Mississippi Institute of Arts and Letters. Among other honors, he won the Grand Award in the Delta Exhibition in 2012 and was included in the 2011 Mississippi Invitational (juried by Franklin Sirmans, Curator of Contemporary Art at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.)
His work is included in the permanent collections of the Ogden Museum in New Orleans and the Ohr-O’Keefe Museum in Biloxi.
Rod lives and works in Oxford, MS with his wife Younok Chong, who is also an artist.
