Artist Statement:
The ‘Cave of the Bodhisattva’s vessel was inspired from a dream during a recent pilgrimage to Mount Kailash, Tibet.  In the dream I enter a mysterious doorway with some trepidation and find myself in a cave illuminated by beings of light.  Some beings are discernible in human form while others are pure light.  Upon awakening I felt cracked open as if I entered a new realm of my being, forever changed.
