Strength scultpture by Robert HoutmanSTRENGTH – Robert Houtman

Local artist Robert Houtman was so moved by the courage of women to surmount the issues that they face that he was inspired to sculpt “STRENGTH”. “STRENGTH” represents women looking to the universe and calling upon their inner strength and wisdom to stand up to adversity.

Robert has been personally touched by the way in which women have persevered through various struggles such as battling breast cancer, drug addictions and abuse. As a way to honour women as well as support women who have experienced domestic violence, Robert Houtman is donating 20% of each “STRENGTH” sculpture purchased to R.E.S.P.E.C.T. Society for Women.

Through Robert’s contribution he not only hopes to help end violence against women but to motivate men to realize that it is not solely the responsibility of women to end this abuse.
