29 Pieces Scupltures

In 2005, artist Karen Blessen began to practice passage meditation, a form of meditation that incorporates sacred texts from major faith traditions. As she slowly and silently repeated memorized passages, Blessen felt certain phrases explode with meaning. She began to devote time each morning to contemplating the passages and writing about them. The words evolved into images, revealing themselves on paper and eventually emerging in three-dimensional form as models for large-scale works.

The 29 pieces of sculpture are as large as 60 feet tall and will bring to life the inspired messages and sacred words from Christian, Jewish, Hindu, Native American and Muslim sacred passages from throughout history.
