By the light
At the base of this light-powered artifact is a unique surface pattern of milled metal that, when illuminated by rays from a light source, radiates that energy back into a specified visual reflection. In this instance, the artifact is a Buddha, representing a way to Enlightenment. And its visual reflection, revealed through as little as a tea-light, the Sanskrit symbol of Om...
Om, the mystic syllable repeated through Hindu and Buddhist traditions, appearing at the beginning and end of most ancient Sanskrit recitations, prayers, and texts. Om, said to invoke the sound of the universe in its first 380,000 years, before there was light. Om, a harmonious mantra with the power to unify through a sense of profound place and purpose; existence itself, evolving through us all.
To enjoy, let light shine on the surface of the artifact as its hidden message is revealed. Like a life force or prana, the light communicates from its source, to the artifact, and onto the closest surface.
