Taking inspiration from Hindu and Tibetan Buddhist imagery, artist Daniel Popper has created a five-metre high wooden female deity, depicted as though she is rising from the earth. Her four hands rest in mudras.
One set rest in Anjali - the mudra of greeting and gesture of respect throughout the Buddhist world - while the other rests in Shuni - the mudra known to reflect patience, intuition, alertness and sensory powers.
Popper's Wooden Deity welcomes viewers and embraces the beauty of her surroundings. Make sure to visit the sculpture after dark to view her all-encompassing glowing aura with visual and audio delights by Nema Adel, Adam Moses and Cliffie Rosenberg (Everything's Possible Productions - EPPRO).
