Every family has it’s stories.
In The Myth of Family, we explored family from a spiritual, cultural, emotional, and personal perspective through the use of sculpture and vases. The idea of the ‘Tree of Life’ and ‘Family Tree’ is prominent in these works.
Each piece tells part of the interwoven story that explores our collective roots and the twisted branches that tell the tale of our human family and experience through myths and stories from around the world and throughout time.
The Brahmanda is part of this family.
The Sanskrit term Brahmanda is derived from two words – ‘Brahma’, the Hindu creator diety, and ‘anda’ which means egg. Not only is the idea of a cosmic/world egg a part of Vedic mythology, it is common among many other cultures and civilizations like the Norse, Greeks, Phoenicians, and Egyptians and even among modern scientists.
