Mirror Plane shows a sexless figure merging with its shadow, surrounded by flowers, abstract writing, and hands. Hand gestures, called mudras, are used in healing and meditation in Eastern philosophies, but here the symbolism is deliberately unspecific. One of the figure’s hands is open in the universal gesture of charity, the other touches fingertips to one another to form a circle, a powerful symbol of wholeness and connectedness in all cultures.
