Familiarity


bhavana project prayer flags




We are revisiting the first set of flags.  Here is artist Mary Cochran's beautifully appliqued addition from May 2006.  The quote from E. Dendel on the back side reads:  "Familiarity often blinds us to the marvels of the commonplace."

Mary said, "Looking back I am in awe of the things it has triggered and brought to my attention. I am still almost daily being shown how deeply rooted a very important influence in my life has been."

Here is a bit of history if you are just joining us.  This set of twelve prayer flags began in July 2005.  Each participant chose a personal theme for their flag.  It is the initial set created for the Bhavana Project, which is an ongoing community art work intending to share wishes and aspirations with the wider world.  New participants are always welcome!
