Today’s piece is one of the Buddha hand-carved slates on Mirror with a candle plinth at his feet. The plinth is carved in the design of the Celtic Spiral of Life, which for me balances the piece well.
The photo, I feel does not do the piece justice (apologies). I have made a few different versions of the Buddha Slate all of which have flown. The only one I have left for myself is “Mantra” which continues to enhance both my wall and my life!
Buddha taught that life is suffering – working through the barrier of chronic pain on a daily basis has opened my understanding to this philosophy!
I find meditation helps my condition and the “Om Mani Padme Hum” is a manta for compassion.
