Second Chance at Enlightenment
EL Wire, fabric, fabric flowers, metal brads, resin face, faux pearls
This Munny was inspired and devised around the face of a broken Buddha light. When it fell, the face broke intact. Another source of inspiration were the Buddhas that were destroyed by the Taliban in Afghanistan. I wanted to show that there remains an enduring idea of life despite any destruction that may occur intentionally or accidentally.
The Buddhist Wheel carved in the back of the head, allowing the light to shine through the vinyl, was done to illustrate the circle of life and reincarnation/recycling.
Additionally, I just wanted it to look nice and also be able to be a light again (see below) — hence the second chance at enlightenment!
