In Growth - TAO Silver
We are going through a collective global experience. In the face of COVID-19 and everything that comes along with it, we are all being forced to adapt as individuals, families, pods, towns, cities, states, and global communities. We are all IN GROWTH.
The newest bead exclusive to The Art Oblivion collection is IN GROWTH, a silver bead etched with overlapping leaves of the Monstera Deliciosa. By developing holes in its leaves, the Monstera Deliciosa is better suited to withstand heavy rainfall and wind as their leaves allow the elements to pass through the holes. This bead invites us to open up spaces in our minds and emotional bodies so that we may withstand and weather whatever may come to pass. The overlapping leaves represent the way we are all in this together.
In the wild, the Monstera Deliciosa also creates a fruit that when eaten ripe tastes like the combination of strawberries, passion fruit, mango, and pineapple. When eaten before it's ripe, the same fruit can cause throat burns and irritation. Monstera Deliciosa quite literally means Delicious Monster, for a reason. I offer you this Monstara bead as a reminder and a talisman to find patience in this seemingly endless pandemic. If you have the patience to wait for the fruit of your GROWTH to fully ripen, you will be in for a real treat. The key to ingesting and appreciating the unusual Monstera fruit - and the fruit that this unusual time is offering us - is to wait for the hard, protective outer shell to fall away and reveal the ripened, sweet material underneath. What will the fruits of your openness, and your patience, taste like?
