Close up Rajmal (kidney beans).

I love the growing affect. The way the shoot/root pushes through the bean, like a birthing process.

I still am concerned that I do not want to distract from the form of the piece. Also I was thinking about have the piece in being multi-layered. There would be a permanent sculpture underneath the process-based part. As the seeds grow and the wet clay drys and falls off, the permanent sculpture is reveled. Conceptual ideas associated with this are:

  • Reincarnation
  • Death
  • Re-birth of consciousness
  • Cycles
  • Buddhist ideas of impermanence
