The Three in One is significant throughout many Contexts and belief structures and with many different explanations, the three as one felt right for me when creating this piece, working with the idea of three eternal souls created in harmony manifesting through the infinite. I was also thinking about the idea of one benevolent force co-creating with people towards a common growth and self exploration. Religions seem to have so many constraints and methods of controlling, yet essentially focus on guiding towards a good and positive common goal.Perceiver, Perceiving Perceived.

Description: Life seems to go easier when everything flows the way it`s meant to. This tactile piece is meant to look and feel the same, to inspire similar emotions, depicting continual movement as the eye is drawn around from every angle. I like to imagine the movement in the core of the earth 27 million years ago when this very piece of stone was formed.
"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately,
to front only the essential facts of life
and see if I could not learn what it had to teach,
and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived." Thoreau
