Part of the "Still" series. I have been making these meditation figures since 2006. Inspired by Chinese tomb figures, the original inspiration was actually a musician holding cymbals, but I have always regarded them as meditating figures. I hand build these hollow then carve and decorate the surface when it is still wet clay.

This meditation figure is carved with a two large lotus flowers and leaves opening on the heart and root chakras. The rest of the body is covered in a transfer of the same pattern with a physical flower in the lap. The figure sits with it's feet tucked under it's seat in a kneeling position. 6" deep by 6" wide and 11.5" in height! I cannot stress enough how unique each one of these figures is.

Surface is a wonderful medley of dripping turquoise, olive green, creamy white and black metallic glazes. As with all of my sculptures these are meant for indoor enjoyment only.
