Flowers of Persephone Net of Gems Ornament
"The Indian image of the 'Net of Gems,' wherein every gem of the net all the others are reflected..." --from Joseph Campbell's The Inner Reaches of Outer Space: Metaphor as Myth and as Religion
This sphere is woven together by wires as a "net," and the glass is reflective as "gems." All of us and everything of the universe as "gems" reflect upon each other. This piece is of recycled materials, as the "gem" of humanity reflects on the "gem" of the environment. In this season of peace and good will, may we consider our own reflection upon each other.
