Size: 33' Weight: 13 pounds Deep inside the flowering lotus lies a hidden gem rarely seen or pondered upon: the seed pod. Upon closer examination, the pod's geometry reveals an intriguing connection to the "Seed of Life." This captivating shape, formed by the intersection of seven circles, represents the interdependence of all living beings and the unity of creation. It serves as a blueprint for the fundamental patterns and structures that underpin the universe, even acting as a guide for the creation of life itself.
For the past few years, I have been captivated by this shape, finding it to be a wellspring of creative inspiration. With meticulous care, I have crafted a mosaic that embodies the essence of this sacred symbol. Through the careful selection of calming shades of green, blue, and yellow, I have sought to evoke a sense of tranquility. The seeds, depicted in a vibrant marigold yellow, are adorned with glass coins of 24 carat gold leaf, accompanied by a circle of fire-torched copper. The shimmering presence of gold bestows a touch of grandeur, beckoning you to explore the hidden secrets concealed within the depths of the Lotus.
As is the case with all my mandala and geometric art, my intention is to create a gateway to a realm of inspiration and introspection. May this piece ignite your soul and awaken your senses, gently reminding you of the hidden treasures that reside within each of us. Embrace the beauty and mystique of life with open arms!
Gold: In metaphysical beliefs, 24 carat yellow gold is believed to have a strong connection to the sun, which is the source of all life and energy on our planet. Its bright, radiant energy is said to promote vitality, confidence, and success. This energy is also said to be protective, helping to ward off negative energy and promote spiritual growth. I am inspired by its beauty and symbolism. I use it to create pieces that evoke a sense of strength, power, and prosperity.
Copper: One of my favorite metals to use and a conduit for happy energy. Copper is believed to be a tool for balancing the chakras and its energy is said to flow freely through the body, helping to remove blockages and promote healing on all levels. In addition to its metaphysical properties, copper is also known for its ability to enhance the energy of other materials. When used in conjunction with other crystals or stones, copper amplifies their energy and help to create a more powerful and harmonious energy field.
