The human spirit's fragility is one of life's constants, yet it can be easily hidden beneath ones external persona. If we were to be able to see the 'broken' souls among us, we would see actual cracks within the body itself. It is by our 'shattered' pieces, remaining from life experiences, that we can emotionally put ourselves back together again. The question and fact remains that nothing broken can ever truly be reassembled in the same fashion. The healing brings about self growth, while the shattered cracks turn to scars. A scarred soul is a heavy burden to carry, no words can express the deeply rooted pain.
The flying grasshopper placed within the mouth represents the need to 'listen' to one's inner voice and vibrations of the soul because no spoken language can truly express feeling.
Energy is expressed in color. The emotional energy of the human spirit is a colorful kaleidoscope. When emotions are raw and misfiring, it is imperative to establish emotional and physical boundaries. These invisible walls are strong and serve as a 'haven' or 'safe space' for the heart and mind, yet the balance of what is allowed to penetrate remains a human struggle.
The glass represents the invisible walls we visualize, creating emotional boundaries. The ash pigment represents a byproduct of unresolved emotion. The leftover energy looking for a place to peacefully settle.
