Artist Statement: Thaddeus means “courageous heart.” He is a talisman created to help us humans face matters of the heart with courage, strength, and grace. The coiled snake on his head is a symbol of transformation and rebirth. Gaze into his calm, green “infinity” symbol eyes and you’ll be ready to stare down anything that life throws at you.
