Continued from previous post... . In a bid to ‘Revive Humanity’ through sculpturing the human heart for @wyfegypt, I tapped into my place of origin and the energy healing arts as source of inspiration. I wanted to create a culturally significant and sacred object, aimed at radiating the energy of love and healing towards the heart of the viewer. This is how the vision for a “Heart Healing Talisman” came to me. . The foundation for the heart was formed with clay and then painstakingly adorned with seed beads. With each bead I said a prayer for universal healing. At the center of heart is an ‘Anahata’ 12 petal Lotus, a symbol of the Heart chakra which is the energy center that allows us recognize that we are interconnected within an intricate web of relationships extending through life and the universe. . The Anahata Lotus is laced with African Cowrie Shells symbolic of our connection to the Earth and Oceans. Radiating within the Anahata Lotus is the word “Love and Unity” written in ‘Nsibidi’ script (An ancient Nigerian form of writing). . I also sourced ‘Peridot Crystals’ used by energy healers to balance the Heart chakra. A balanced heart center freely gives love to others without fear and attracts the energy of abundance, prosperity and happiness in return. . It still feels all so surreal to be part of this initiative. Many thanks to the team at @theajalaproject, @shoshakamaldesignhouse and @wyfegypt for this opportunity and also to all other artists who worked hard to make this memorial a reality. . I stand for Humanity, do you? . . . #healing#healingart#anahata#lotus#energyhealing#talisman#heart#mandala#artforhumanity#sculpture#beadwork#contemporaryart#symbolism#egypt#sharmelsheikh

Today, youths and leaders from all over the world will unite at the @wyfegypt on a sacred mission.... to “Revive Humanity”. . The ‘Revive Humanity’ memorial was created to resuscitate our long lost humanity that has dissipated overtime as a result of wars, terrorism and misfortunate events all around the world. This memorial serves to remind the world that our need to be humane and respectful to each other regardless of our religious, ethnical, political and other MAN-MADE differences; has become a NECESSITY and not a luxury anymore. . Selected artists for the memorial were given creative freedom to sculpt human hearts as a symbol of human emotions and feelings. I’ll be sharing my contribution to this memorial in subsequent posts. . . #wyfegypt2018#revivehumanity#memorial#artforhumanity#egypt#humanity#worldyouthforum#sharmelsheikh

Title:“The Attunement” 2018 Size: 20” x 30” Medium: Charcoal, Gouache and Gold Leaf on Archival paper. . . Beliefs are convictions that guide our spirit and form a part of our identity. When someone criminalizes or demonizes what you believe in and you ‘accept’ this, it is then that you lose a fundamental part of yourself. This form of psychological attack opens you up to identity manipulation. My people lost a part of themselves when they ‘abandoned’ their authentic beliefs for that of their colonizers. In the words of Chinua Achebe... “Where things fell apart”. . . To reclaim ourselves, we will need to ‘attune’ with where our aboriginal ancestors left of and evolve their understanding of our connection with the creator into harmony with what we have accepted today. . . #attunement#afrospirituality#iconography#gold#illumination#belief#africanart#contemporaryart#ankh#tuareg#halo#art#spiritualawakening#consciousness

#WIP. I’m back to exploring form and blending it with new mediums to create a kind of healing Talisman. I’ve always been drawn to the energy healings arts. And this is my interpretation of the need to constantly stimulate energy in our heart center, so that we may have enough love to give to ourselves and to others.

Excerpts from current read “The Artist’s Journey” by my favorite author ‘Steven Pressfield”. . . I think Artist’s journey has no destination. To think that you have it all figured out at any point in time, is project into the universe that there is no more room for you to grow. On the contrary, there is no limit to your imagination. As you go through new life experiences, your subconscious is open to new information that will shape how you approach your work. . . #selfdiscovery#evolution#artlife#stevenpressfield#wisdom

Finding inspiration in our sacred objects... “Isi-agu” (translated as Lions Head) is an illuminated velvet fabric used for special ceremonial occasions by the Igbo people of Nigeria. It was originally designed to be adorned by those in Chieftaincy status. While this fabric is typically found in the color Red, variations could also found in Blue and Black. #inspiration#Gold#Red#traditional#culture#sacredart#fabric#texture#illumination#Nigeria#Igbo

The concept of “Duality” was a very prominent theme in Igbo philosophy and affected every aspect of the Igbo society including societal relations, religion and way of communal government. The concept of duality suggests that where one thing stands, another stands either to complement or oppose its existence. Feminine - Masculine, Visible- Invisible, Bad - Good. With respect to religion the Igbo’s believed in duality of the universe , the ‘Material’ having as much existence and correlation to the ‘Spiritual”. It was believed that balancing complementary opposites formed the basis of harmony between both worlds. Hence when crisis like war, famine or infant mortality sprung up, the people consulted a diviner to intercede between both worlds and with “Chukwu”(Supreme God) to find a way to restore balance. . .
