Samsara is Sanskrit for Life Cycle or Flow. In creating this piece, I wanted to capture the essence of life and death in the mountains and the respect that they impress upon us. By framing the view, I was able to combine the grandeur of the mountains with the symbols imparted by the sculpture: mother and child, tree of life, a heart, and other images open to interpretation by the viewer.”
