Art on a spiritual theme…

Interactive Station: The Tree of Life or the Tree of Enlightenment.

Finished mandala with exhibition visitor’s names on leaves and attributes of a nurturing community on the flowers.

The Tree of Life appears in almost every faith, but it could be the Jewish Old Testament tree in Eden, the Christian, Mormon or Baha’i Tree of Life, the Bodhi Tree of Enlightenment of the Buddhist, The Norse tree of Yggdrasill, the Oak tree of the Druid or the Fig tree of Hinduism.

All are pictures of the archetypal Sacred Tree, a metaphor for the source of life and connecting all forms of creation.

One-day-only exhibition: Saturday 6th July, 12.00 noon to 4.00pm.

A variety of artists with different influences and views on a common theme of spirituality, illustrating the very many ways art can be spiritual.

As reported by RNZ Checkpoint on 23rd April 2019.

Followed by an interview with immigration lawyer Alistair McClymont detailing the background to this.
