Dianne Harris’ Flower of Life is a spinning flower, when the flower reaches the speed of centrifugal force, powered by the viewer, it opens up to reveal an illuminated spinning Star Tetrahedron emulating a spinning Merkaba,' the vehicle which has been said to transport oneself into the next dimension'.
Within Harris' sculpture, unbeknown to our eyes, the Star Tetrahedron sits on a Metatron’s Cube structure and is illuminated by a symbol of the Fruit of Life. If the flower stops spinning - i.e the focus is lost - the flower will snap shut and take the viewer out of the moment, returning back into this dimension.
Recurrent symbolism of the Flower of Life and Fruit of Life - composed of 13 circles, is found in Mayan and other ancient civilizations, including an inscription on the ancient Osirian Temple in Abydos, Egypt, approx 6000 years old. The Fruit of Life is said to be the blueprint of the universe, containing the basis for the design of every atom, molecular structure and life form. When the centres of all 13 circles converge it creates Metatron's Cube which contains the 5 platonic solids, the template from which all life springs, one of these is the Star Tetrahedron.
Harris’ Flower of Life, stands as a reminder of the Star Tetrahedron which through specific breathwork and visualisation of the spinning form creates the Merkaba experience of expanded awareness, elevated potential of consciousness, and the ability to change the body's vibrational field to access other dimensions.
