These are some of the metalwork nichos (shrines) I've made in the last 2 weeks.
I love this "heart on fire" theme.
It's a common mexican folk art image.
Milagro corazon - or healing heart.
Did you know our hearts have neurons too?
Not just our brains?
It is strangely comforting to know that.
It means that even in the midst of something I don't understand with my mind, my heart can know a thing or two.
How many times have you said,
"I know in my heart ..." -?-
I'm leaning on that knowledge these days.
