Pat Lasch, Ruth Elisheva


I am a sculptor who has been working now for five decades. My focus has been on feminist issues. I am presently working a series of garments and jewelry for Pope Joan II. The papistry is the glass ceiling for the church, a reflection of women’s position in general society. Women hand sewed all papal garments, always for men. Please see the legend of Pope Joan.
