The name “Libera” comes from the Latin “liberare,” meaning “to free.” Liberta was the goddess of liberty – a significant figure in Roman mythology, revered as the goddess of freedom.

A2IM worked with the Portland-based artist, Zak Gere, to create a statuette that represented liberation. The dancing woman captures movement, strength, and freedom. She was originally done in wire. You can see examples of Zak’s wire work in the linked article above.
