OHM Open Hearted Meditator
OHM was born through collaboration on a commissioned piece. Its initial creation was a six foot figure sitting in lotus position with an open heart. As I was working on the piece I felt such an incredible energy from it that I wanted to make a bigger version and share it at Burning Man.
Creating the larger piece was a fun challenge and I was thrilled with the way it turned out. The base armature was formed by weaving sticks and branches together, then the entire piece was given a skin of fiberglass. The concept is that we all have a natural core and a hard man-made external shell and that if you have an open heart you can bridge the two.
I hope you can feel its energy and that it holds a space for you to open your heart.
Featured here are seven foot versions of OHM awaiting their final polishing. These ones were constructed using a white marble cement. This design is available for purchase.
