About two hundred years ago in a monastery located somewhere in the hills of Japan there was a monk who had dedicated his life to Zen Buddhism. His name was Genshin and in addition to his devotion to Buddhism, he was an artist. He was a writer, poet and at the time worked with the advanced technique of woodcuts. The time has not been exactly established but it is known that sometime in the 19th century he wrote a book about the story of the Buddhist paradise.
On rice paper he wrote the wonderful story of the Buddha’s journey to paradise. This was a spiritual journey that can only be made with an awakened mind and higher consciousness. The story was chronicled in the booklet and decorated with various woodcuts of the Buddha on his way to Paradise.
The little book made its way around the world for about two hundred years before finally ending up for sale online, where I bought it.
The thought of a booklet traveling such a long journey can only mean that the knowledge it contains should not be lost.
When the booklet came into my possession, however, it turned out to be so brittle that the ravages of time had not done the delicate paper much good. I decided to save the pages that were still in reasonable condition by digitizing them.
Here began my mission to pass on and revitalize Genshin’s work. And so, my FORTUNE TREES was born.
My work contains a message to all that we are the strength of our existence. We can grow against a background of our consciousness. This is a shift that we can achieve by finding the power within ourselves. We can experience the beauty of our existence.
We must be aware of where we came from and understand that we can build on where we are going. Humanity’s greatest art project, The Metaverse, is underway. Blockchain technology is changing us. It will help decentralize the world and, in this process, we will reinvent our own authenticity and creativity. We will become reconnected with the universe, the earth and humanity.
My (N) FORTUNE TREES are a reflection of us humans in our path to become Metahumans.
The tree stands for life and growth. The outlines stand for our consciousness shifting to a higher frequency. The background stands for the field of pure information and indefinite possibility. The way we follow on our own path.
