While chanting, the artist gathers materials (natural fabrics, beads, shells, etc.) and fashions them into one-of-a-kind fiber artworks. They usually take the form of bundled tassels or prayer flags and sometimes include written words, phrases, or poems.
When finished, they are hung up, usually outside from trees, pergolas, poles or trellises. As they flutter in the wind or hang still — sun or rain-soaked; snow-covered or frozen — they release the chants for peace, compassion, loving kindness, and hope into the air. Allowed to disintegrate in the elements like sand paintings, they scatter their offerings to all the world’s precious beings.
When hung inside, they are constant reminders of the chants they hold within and permeate the space around them with peace, serenity and love.
