"Hope" is a Steampunk Santos. She is a powerful reminder of the vulnerability of our race becoming conversation dependent. I loved creating her because she represents many things I care about, such as the eco system, recycling, our beautiful planet earth and its amazing inhabitants.
The organic Chakra crown created from a bird nest and lotus pod with its butterflies, bees, a cross and tiny human figurines reminds us that we are all connected and in need of protection! I added two pieces of the Berlin Wall (indicating change) and quartz crystals to clear the mind of negativity. The bottom part features lights that can be turned off and on and some of the endangered animals. There is a mini Santos that slowly rotates with the help of a motor. Hope is holding a lantern (operated by batteries) that sheds lights on the problems we face.Secret messages are embedded inside the cage.
