The collector who dubbed this piece "Wind Warrior" could not have picked a more appropriate name. Out of the woven reed-like patterns, a mysterious figure emerges, offering wisdom and strength with a stoic gaze. These qualities are essential for anyone on their true path and were especially important at this stage of my journey as an artist. There's something mystical about the creative process, where the image that's unconsciously revealed is exactly what the conscious mind needs to see. Wind Warrior is a reminder that there is great knowledge, wisdom and power in all of us but we must face our fears to receive it.
