This is a sculptures
that evolved out of the void. I loved the models butt on my Closer sculpture and
made a copy from it, but where do I go from there? I turned it into a circular disc
and thought Id leave it like that as a full moon. The hands were
added in as an afterthought, like the design of a Navaho Indian Mandala Sun
painting. The gold gilded butt is accentuated by Indian Summer gilding
on the hands. I love the way this sculpture turned out.
A Mandala is an imaginary palace that
is contemplated during meditation, representing some aspect of wisdom, reminding the
meditator of some guiding principle. The palace of my Mandala is
"woman". I find God in the shared union between the sexes. To me
that is spiritual enlightenment.
