I have long had a fascination with religious architecture. From the Lascaux caves to the ancient Egyptian temples to the high Gothic cathedrals to Hagia Sophia Mosque to the erotic temples of India, their forms are most human, reflecting the endless mystery of creation. I find archways and domes of these styles to be undeniably feminine, transformational symbols of renewal, rebirth, reflection, and reunion. The Indira body of art jewelry abstracts these archways and architectural forms into small scale objects that can be worn or held close to the heart.
