A found object shrine incorporating two artists individual pieces as well as collaboration on the piece. The shrine evokes the sacredness of of secret languages, hidden spaces, Nature and her Elements, the power of the feminine and the fear and faith of the veiled woman. This shrine challenges the idea of symmetry and sameness with opposing color palettes, hues and textures. The currently available art piece from this shrine is the Freedom Totem.
