In their memory, 2011, Louise Snook
Materials - Garments from deceased estates, cotton thread, beads.
During my early twenties I lived in Tokyo for a year, teaching English. My Japanese flat mate, Yuko and I shared a tiny apartment with a comparatively huge ceremonious shrine in memory of her dead parents. Persimmons played a significant role in the Buddhist ritualistic offerings placed in front of the shrine. In Buddhist philosophy the persimmon is said to symbolize transformation. The young persimmon tree produces acid and bitter fruit, but the fruit becomes sweet as the tree matures. Thus the analogy is that man might be basically ignorant but with age that ignorance is transformed into wisdom and compassion.

Lou, these are beautiful. Although I don't think they are suitable as play things for children under six.

Transformation in the world happens when people are healed and start investing in other people.
