Water Prayer Wheel

Art Description

The wheel is turned by the force of water from another part of the chorten and often they are hand-held  but they are all inscribed with Buddhist prayers or mantras. Spinning the wheel is believed to have the same effect as reciting the prayer. It is said that prayer wheels are used to accumulate wisdom and merit or good karma and to purify negative energy.The concept of the prayer wheel is a physical manifestation of the phrase “turning the wheel of Dharma,” which describes the way in which the Buddha taught.

About the Artist

“What is, is. What isn’t, isn’t.” My path to becoming an artist is through my necessity for self-actualization, the realization of my full inner potential through; art, creativity, independence and spontaneity while being mindful of my limitations, acceptance and a grasp of the real world throughout my life. I am always discovering my being, transcending and evolving, by producing (textured, experimental, unexpected and improvisational mixed media) artworks that create new and unpredictable cycles of thoughts. In my varied and diverse approaches to making art, I hope to invite and provoke the viewer to draw into a state of speculation, juxtaposition and ironic twist of images with a chance to challenge one’s thoughts, perspectives and expectations.
