Reflection in Singing Bowl, Alton Mills Art Centre
Representing the heavenly body Venus, this bowl my Marlene Hilton Moore is said to have been spun from a single sheet of sacred bronze metal.
The bowl does not actually sing, but represents the meditative aspect of traditional singing bowls. The artist believes the size amplifies that connection without shouting, and the colour (golden yellow) carries the promise of enlightenment and happiness.
Another view of the reflection
Brown on the outside surface represents earth, which connects the meditative moment to all things natural.
