Treasure in Earthen Vessels

Donna Marie Buchanan's avatar Donna Marie Buchanan

Haunting, ethereal beauty. An empty shell of natural bark (representing our outer selves), covered with lichen, painted with faces. The faces seem to emerge from the bark, fascinating the viewer. The inside and sculpted roots at the base (representing the spirit) are painted gold and textured with gold leaf. The title, based on a scripture verse, is intended to encourage the viewer to look beyond outside appearances.
