Summary
"In the Hindu Puranas, an ancient tale, The Churning of the Sea of Milk, elicited a personal meditation on loss, struggle and grace. I translated my meditation through an improvisation of image and language, based upon the bas relief mural of this legend on Angkor Wat's eastern gallery"--Artist's statement, page [3] of accompanying bifolium
