Fragments of Prayers #3

 

This is #3 of a series of three books which were a meditation on the Buddhist chant OM MANI PADME HUM

 

 

 

Again I started with a sheet of  heavy-weight, white St Armand paper (http://www.st-armand.com/English/E01-welcome.php) and proceeded to write sixty different ways with gesso, sumi, walnut ink and white gouache.

 

 

 

 

Then I cut the sheet into sixty pieces. They are bound together in what Cherryl Moote calls a Photo Carousel in her book, Photo Op.

 

The pages of this book did not lie flat nicely like those in Fragments of Prayers #2 and I wanted them to look like a photo carousel so they are housed in a round box which was inspired by a CD container.
