Phebe Knox Intihar's picture

"Welcome to the Dinner Party"

Liza's comments seem sophisticated to me.

I would add that the right-side figure is perhaps knocking: As my maiden name at Bryn Mawr was Phebe Knox, I am sensitive to that issue: "Knock and it shall be opened unto you." Maybe, or maybe not in this case: this figurine represents not only an issue of gender, race is added in as well, as the figure is colored. And someone is keeping something closed and gatekeeping, so she has to knock and hope to be let in.

Phebe '66
