This sculpture arose from working with the remnants edges surrounding another sculpture, transforming them into their own small forms.  It was nice to watch them take on their own identities, and to begin to coalesce into a collective whole.  There was much patience and deep breathing as I applied the minute detail on each piece, and I reflected on how these same elements are needed throughout our lives as we take on the various ups and downs that are inherent in life.  I am grateful for the grounding of my breath, and the reminder that sometimes it is all we need to do to keep going. When I was photographing the sculpture, my 12 year old son remarked that they looked like passengers, which so embodied how I felt about them.  We are all passengers in this life, separate in our selves, but together in the journey. 

This sculpture is made from an original macro photograph, printed on handmade kozo paper, layered with multiple layers of encaustic medium, intricately carved with wooden tools, further colored with powdered pigment, and sculpted in shape.  Each piece was then further adorned with tiny droplets of melted wax medium, and placed on the found wood vessel from our land.  It is a pedestal piece, but could be wired for mounting on a wall.
