The ‘Cosmic Egg’ is a canvas in miniature representing a series of dark shades made with a repeating sequence of 9 yarns.
A cosmic egg is an elemental natural shape, a bundle of yarns that symbolises the elements and planets. It pertains to the Dharma world and the understanding of the fundamental wellbeing of nature.
9 variously coloured fibers are wound in 9 yarns to form represent indefinite series of coloured dark shades.
Warmer and colder colours suggest shades of the elements: terra, aqua, aer and ignis*.
