Ancestral Sphere Project
This mosaic piece was part of a commission that I did about 10 years ago for a temple as part of their restoration project. It is one of three spheres that are exchanged occasionally. They are located on top of the arche which is above the Torah. It was a wonderful project that I had the honor of working on. People in their congregation donated family treasures for me to use as part of the mosaic piece. I surrounded those items with semi-precious stones, geodes, crystal points, then created a hammered copper collar for the sphere to sit on. It was a project that was amazing to work on.
The pieces of jewelry…… watches, wedding bands, pins, mementos, metals, cuff links, even dog tags…..were given with such love; each piece holding decades of special memories for the families. I was deeply touched and affected by the stories that were shared. Each item was filled with the energy of the ancestor who once wore the item. I was lead…sometimes emotionaly….to place a piece in a certain spot; not knowing why one item had to be near another item…. only later learning that they were related to each other. I was invited to be part of a ceremony during one of the congregations religious holidays and was delighted to see the response from everyone. They freely shared their delight and told me of the coincidences of the alignment of some of the pieces. It was an amazing experience… like no other…..and I feel blessed to have been part of it.
“When two or more people coordinate in a spirit of harmony and work towards a definite objective or purpose, they place themselves in position, through alliance, to absorb power directly from the great storehouse of Infinite Intelligence.”
