Yes 6 months have elapsed since I began this challenge. I am surprised that I have been able to keep at it. But they do say that if you do a thing long enough it will turn into a habit.
This week I continue with the goddess of compassion. I have decided to make the aquamarine colour the connective element it these pieces. I looked at the statue and found her feet beautiful to contemplate. I know that sounds strange but the more I looked at the detail the more serene I found them.
Every time I am in the Pagoda there are always people coming and going. Tourists, passers by, the curious and non ever seem to take the time to contemplate the beauty of the place. It is, just take a quick look, a photo and then on with our lives. To represent this I used the modern shoe fabric. I kept the blue fabric continuous, to show the length of time the statue represents and the shoe fabric disjointed, like our modern day lives.
I found trying to outline the design on the legs very difficult because of the size. Perhaps I should have just drawn this in and I used the aquamarine thread to out line the legs to represent a sort of aura.
