It's a traditional buddhist symbol for eternity .. maybe that's why it's used there..?

Oh my , this is stunning. Its so sweet to hear and see another artist use Tea as material :) I do too :) I find white tea to be very greasy while the black teas have stronger brownish colour. Yet green tea is very light :) I haven't tried Rooibos :) Love and Light *

Amazing work. At first I thought it was a garden trellis in her middle, but looking at it zoomed-out I can see it's a celtic knot. I'm guessing one symbolising infinity and unity and so on? I love the way you use empty space around her legs and feet, and only using colours to outline each leg and separate her feet. It gives the piece a sense of simplicity, which is completely at odds with the incredible detail you can see when you look closer! Thanks for sharing :)
