Tree of Life, Which Liberates Upon Seeing

This piece was inspired by my time at a conference for women who had been affected by cancer, which was held at the Shambhala Mountain Center in Colorado. As I walked round and round the The Great Stupa of Dharmakaya there, I felt a much needed sense of calming and spaciousness.

The red marble in this piece is from the inside of the stupa (taken with permission).
