This chart is for a little biscornu designed on the theme of 'Stillness'
In summer 2013 I visited a flower festival at my local Parish church, and whilst wandering around the beautiful historic building, I entered a small chapel where there were many candles burning. There was a small notice explaining that although lighting a candle in itself was not necessarily significant, it acted as a 'visual prayer' – a reminder of prayer. As a practising Christian, this idea sowed a small seed in my mind, and I began to consider how a small crafted item could serve as a visual prompt for prayer or meditation. I felt some people may value a subtle visual prompt for prayer or meditation – for example, an overtly religious symbol may not be appropriate in the workplace.
The theme of this biscornu is inspired by Psalm 46 verse 10: 'Be still and know that I am God'. It reminds me to pause and remember this occasionally in the busy rush of everyday life. Of course, you may find it reminds you of something completely different. The symbolism is not necessarily Christian; it could relate to any aspect of spirituality, or you may just like the design. Whatever your point of view, I hope you like this little biscornu.
