I received a flower today...

This project is a series of mixed media paintings in which I place a white porcelain flower on a woman's head.  In Korean tradition, a woman with a flower on her head signifies madness. But in my case, I place a flower made of white clay, that is, porcelain. In Mongolia, the colour white is revered as sacred, because it represents mother’s milk. And clay, coming from Earth, is also symbolic of Mother.  Thus, placing a flower made of porcelain on a woman's head is an expression of the healing power of the boundless love personified by Mother.

 

Media used: Acrylic on Board, Porcelain
