First workshop

The meaning behind an image contributes to the value of a craft and its usefulness. India is revealing itself to be a highly religious and spiritual country, therefore these meanings tie to that nature. (Specifically Buddhism in this case) Here I am (the far back) carefully deliberating which symbol I value the highest and is most relatable to me in this point in time.

I chose the golden fish which means according to the sheet: “The golden fish symbolizes the auspiciousness of all living beings in a state of fearlessness, without danger of drowning in the ocean of suffering and migrating from place to place freely and spontaneously, just as fish swim freely.”

To transfer the sketch on the wood the blue paper is put underneath the drawing and you trace it onto the wood.
