Since I will be on vacation during reveal week, I needed to get my piece completed and photographed, loaded into cyberspace so I can submit it at the proper time. My readers will see it first here.
This project actually began in Larkin Jean Van Horn's shattered circles class last Fall.
The more I 'puzzled' over what I wanted to do with it, my ideas about this challenge kept colliding with this shattered circle. Although others may not see the symbolism without my explanation, here is a breakdown of what you are looking at from my perspective:
global/earth view, fragmented but complete
creation vs. evolution
fish symbolic of Christian faith vs. fish as part of the evolutionary cycle
intersecting crossroads of man and his beliefs ie. pathways to life
24 puzzle pieces from a two-sided dinosaur puzzle (complete just not assembled)
