The Seeker

“May peace be within you, may your heart be strong. May you find what you're seeking wherever you roam.” ~Irish Blessing

The Seeker expresses the quest to discover life’s purpose by searching the spiritual realm. The arrangement evokes the idea of an altar or ritual~ perhaps the unseen seeker has camped for the night and is preparing to invoke the Creator.

The well-worn, labeled suitcase suggests a long journey; the books, coins, Tarot~ are tools to aid entry to a spiritual domain. Bells entrance with hypnotic reverberation and symbolize the idea of pilgrimage.

The candle’s light, an individual soul inspired toward enlightenment, burns brightly and warmly in the interior space until absorbed by the greater surrounding light. The arabesque movement, guided by placement of objects and shadows is gentle but mesmerizing. All is in place for the seeker’s revelation.
