Beyond the Veil
The Divine Transition
In meditation I have often experienced a veil of light that seems to separate my physical self from the infinite Divine. I believe that once we leave our physical body, we immediately pass through this veil and re-unite with the Divine.
In this sculpture, I have tried to convey the experience and rapture of that passage. The female form, her hand over her heart, moves quickly and effortlessly through the veil.
Carved from the roots and trunk of a Silver Maple tree, the sculpture was stained white to reflect the essence of light.
It measures 30” in diameter and 24” in height.
