Is it politics, or the universal OM? Are they laughing or crying or screaming? How do we really know what the inside landscape of another really looks like? What does my own landscape have to say? The geometric form is the truncated icosahedron. Each piece hand stitched together into a sphere, stuffed, painted and measuring 14” dia.

Remember that exercise ball you just had to have but never use? Well this is what happened to mine. Using acrylic paint over the surface was a fun way to make it special. Can I still roll around on it? I have a feeling , not any more. 25”dia., a plastic ball, a little paint and many hours of fun and contemplation later, and voila, a jewel to behold.

Another painted basketball. The physical eye sees the world from one dimension, the knowing spiritual eye understands the world through the consciousness. Do we only look at the world, or do we embrace our full knowing? Then again,  how many ways are there to SEE the world around us, inner and outer. I’m quite sure it is as many as we can imagine.

Painted inflated playground ball 18” dia. Design formed to show the geometric dodecahedron structure of the sphere. The pentagonal five sided form represents “life” or “health”.                                                                                        This design forms a gateless protection sign. A circle is divided into five arcs of 72 degrees, a prime number. Five represents the element of Earth.

MEM-ALEPH, two letters from the Hebrew alphabet that represent MA, or the sound of the Divine Feminine and Mother. Mem meaning “water”, and aleph, ” the beginning”. Divine maternity, cosmic birth, nurture, and the female wisdom principle in most of the world’s languages. Goddess of creation is a recognized essence in every reach of our universe.
