Shattered Serenity

Shattered

13″  X  15″   Shattered is a glass on glass (on glass) mosaic in gun metal patina frame. This frame and glass was found at a salvage shop and is an RV window. The glass bits are broken recycled candle jar and the face is ceramic Buddha-like icon. The face is multi-leveled, both behind and in front of the glass window. In effect, the shattered face is coming through the window.

Little Altars

Little Altars

SOLD!   5″  x  9″   Little Altars is an assemblage that represents the abundance of religious icons available, yet it only offers a small portion of what is really out there. This piece is posted for day three of Art Every Day Month, in which I am participating. Art Every Day is a group that encourages each other to be creative in some way every day for the month of November.

Buddha, Lakshmi, Mary, Jesus, Earth Mother and more are here, in a box that is made from a whole hymnal. The covers create the box while the pages in the back create a visual and literal support.

Buddha’s Hand

Buddha's Hand

11″ x 11″  Buddha’s Hand is an assemblage. The background is comprised of an antique image in gold ink. Buddha’s face is drawn with pencil on vellum and painted in gold on the back – my favorite of the many depictions of Buddha’s image. The gold wire hand to the left of the face is a mudra – a symbolic gesture.

“The thumb and index finger of the right hand stand for wisdom and method combined. The other three raised fingers symbolize the teaching of the Buddhist doctrine, which leads sentient beings to the paths of the beings of three capacities who follow the combined path of method and wisdom.” http://www.buddhanet.net/e-learning/history/mudras.htm
