Another Pendant, saw this over a magaine, so went to work on it.
I have used almost 2 meter of wire, weaved till fingers stiffen.
Really happy with the result.
Today 10-10-10 is also a great day for wedding, which meant perfect in all ways. I bet the marriage registrar department will be flooded with people today.
Lotus has been associated to many religions for thousands of years.
In Buddhism the lotus flower symbolizes faithfulness. The golden lotus that is mentioned in Buddhist sutras has two meanings, one is the symbol for the achievement of enlightenment and the other points towards a real flower which is beyond our normal perception.
The influence of a lotus flower painting is to open us up to beauty and light. A good lotus flower painting can act as a reminder of the miracle of beauty, light and life. This reminder, communicated on an emotional level, is said to aid both spiritual and practical understanding of Tao, the world and our place in it.
Chinese poets also use lotus flowers to inspire people to continue striving through difficulties and to show their best part to the outside world, no matter how bad the circumstances may be. This is understood as being just like the lotus flower, bringing beauty and light from the murky darkness at the bottom of the pond.
So, no matter how much arguments there is in a marriage, hold on, there will be light at the end of the day. Oh yes, never bring anger to bed too.
Although I'm not a Buddhist, I wish God bless all couples that are marrying today, and not forgotten those already married.
