Lucky Horse Hooves

October 16, 2010 § Leave a comment

7 Lucky Horse Hooves found while out walking this summer. I especially liked these objects because of the way they augmented a normal household symbol of luck into something gruesome and earthy.

 

I had intended that today’s Audio Mandala installation would feature a pyramid of 406 shotgun shells, with 28 layers, each corresponding to one level on the Buddhist structure of reincarnation. Fixing two nails either end of the first layer I made it to ten levels before the right hand side gave way. I would have given it another shot except I didn’t have the time. I got a photo of it with 9 layers.
