Artist's description:

"Shine like the whole universe is yours" - Rumi

Inspired by this fabulous Rumi quote, I wrote this short poem that evoked the imagery for this magnificent piece painted into this re-purposed apple crate.

"Shimmer and glow and beam all you lovers,
Brothers and sisters, fathers and mothers...
Uncover your dreams and open your heart,
drop all the pretense and make a fresh start...
Lean into your goodness and be not afraid,
Rub yourself shiny, step out of the shade!"

Happy and hand-crafted elements of lovebirds, gold leaf and embellished wings have been added to the luscious acrylic paintwork. The shiny shrine has it's own in-built shelf to put a candle, some flowers and an apple offering to the lovely Madonna and perhaps a photo of your own favorite deity or guru?...
Please watch the video below.

This special piece can sit on a sideboard or be hung on the wall using 'Heavy duty' picture hooks.
60 x 92 x 28cm

Materials used:

Textile, embroidery, acrylic paint and gold leaf on a up-cycled timber apple crate

The shiny shrine of the apple crate madonna (2016)
