Mother Refuge speaks about my mother's miscarriage of my older brother while traveling by foot thru shallow waters along a mountainside of Northern Malaysia. The detailed elements in the wallpaper include a fetus being carried away by a lotus flower, and cradled by cherry blossoms. The lotus flower naturally grows in muddy water and represents a purifying of a spirit, born into and through murkiness. The lotus is a metaphor for life and death.
Portrait is of my mother, taken in my fathers portrait studio in Can Tho, Vietnam before the Fall of Saigon.
