The three face gears are formations with PLA filament & Tulle. They are interpretations of three auspicious Pagan symbols. Analog photographs with 35 mm film.
The face piece is interpretation of a Pagan symbol 'Air'. This symbol has been a part of most Pagan traditions, signifying soul & relating to breath of life.
The face piece is interpretation of 'Ankh', Egyptian cross, a Pagan symbol of divinity. It relates to spiritual beliefs, rather than believing in one particular religion.
The face piece is interpretation of a Pagan symbol 'Thor's Hammer'. Thor is the Norse God of thunder, storms & strength. The symbol finds place in protecting & blessing rituals.
They are heads, living discreetly on surfaces. The formations are removed from the idea of wholeness of the characters, sometimes bringing a natural element of ambiguity.
