The Hundredth Angel

This piece was inspired by a Ken Keyes essay called "The Hundredth Monkey"
( to understand this piece, read the story of The 100th monkey )

There are 98 little cherub angels on this wall piece ....... 
the large angel at the edge of the mirror makes 99 angels, in all.......
If you look into the mirror you will be the 100th Angel.....that very one that allows the universe to shift.
Can you see me looking into the mirror?
Now it's your turn to claim your power and announce yourself as the 100th Angel.

this piece really speaks to me - your attention to detail & the exquisite way your eye see's really inspire me, but the inspiration of the essay behind the piece has magnified its magnificence ten fold. thank you for sharing the essay. (and the piece).

ps - I AM the 100th angels & am so happy to see you again. :)

Inspiring and intriguing!

Astonishingly modest, yet also

Trompe l’œil, look carefully, the
Hidden angel is there
Enthroned and exposed.

Humanity perceived,
Understood and laid bare.
Nature’s riddle,
Discern and distinguish her
Reflected image
Enthroned amongst
Dazzling gems and fragments.
Think and reflect,
Have an effect.
