Existence Shall Ism

Haji Miranda's avatar Haji Miranda

Come take your photo "wearing" these 22K gold leafed & Swarovski black diamond coated wings, as you are haloed by a melting mandala, hand painted in acrylic paint and black sand. The mandala is representative of both the beauty & the discord in this world we share. 'Existence Shall Ism' in name plays with a contrast of concepts. Taken as separate words, it's about humanity's tendency to form groups that are harmful and divisive, such as fascism, racism, sexism... Verses Existentialism, being more about embracing the personal responsibility of our beliefs, actions and life's outcome. Existence Shall Ism pays homage to all those who need our Light in their present darkness... Be it from natural disaster or humanity's unkindnesses to each other, we have recently stood witness to much tragedy in our world... Here and now, Don your Wings, let's Rise from this madness Together!
