One central golden metal lotus with candle symbolising the Inner Divine Light
28 ceramic pomegranates - the pomegranate is one of the three considered holly fruits with the date and olive. A fruit full of seeds who symbolise all our inner possibilities of realisation on this reality and lifetime.
As it was a " hazard " the fact I worked out 28 pieces of pomegranates, I was very impressed when I discovered that the number 28 have a very interesting reference in Bible related to the concept I was looking for : Ecclesiastes, in the chapter 3 verses 2 to 8, enumerates 28 "times" in these 7 verses:
"There is a time for giving birth and a time for dying, for planting and for uprooting what has been planted, to kill and heal, to destroy and build, to cry and laughter, to mourn and dance, to throw stones away and to gather them, to embrace and to refrain from embracing, to search and lose, to keep and discard, to tear and sew, for keeping silent and to speak, to love and to hate, and finally a time for war and a time for peace."
All around the pomegranates I made 365 ceramic small pieces, same as days of a year, all unique and beautiful, as a reminder and subject of meditation that our days on earth are beautiful but limited and at the end we will all come back to mother Earth, except The Inner Divine Light.
Peace and Love
