(The Path of Purification)
As one who mounts a lofty stair,
Leans on its railing for a prop,
As one who climbs an airy peak
Leans on the mountain’s very top,
As one who stands on crag’s edge
Leans for support on his own knees –
Each jhana rests on that below,
For it is with each of these. From the Visuddhimagga

Joseph the husband of Mary is celebrated today. He was a very hard worker and is always portrayed as such. On the left is a model in clay and on the right the finished statue hand carved in wood. It still needs to be primed and painted.

This figureheads probably belonged to the some Royal Naval troopships used to carry soldiers. I love the gilded angel looking up in the sky, It’s a great piece of art and craftsmanship.

I don’t know much about this streetart piece. I found it while I was looking for an art gallery and I had to stop to take a closer look. What do you think?
