... a silvery salmon all slippery and shiny ...
This little fish grew out of, or possibly into, the TURNIP LADY, a strange watery creature who took her time to develop.
She sat for many years without a self until one day she inspired her own face, and at the same time, an identity. Soon the other outstanding question of her existence was equally inexplicably resolved: what was she clutching? It turned out to be this little salmon.
The fish has always been an important motif for Sioban - it appears in her imagery again and again. The fish has overtones of community, beliefs, and - in the case of the salmon - great courage.
