Ritual Coordinates (varada)

Plaster, quartz crystals, steel
28 x 20 x 20 cm


These works are invocations of Ritual Coordinates. Each hand cast sculpture holds special symbolism as a mudra, a symbolic or ritual restorative gesture in Buddhism, with jagged extrusions of crystalline shards thrusting from each wrist. The varada mudra allows forgiveness and buries the things that trouble us.
