Spirit, Soul, Body

Spirit, soul, body are the elements that make up the human "person". It was a natural progression for me to create the series, "Spirit, Soul, Body" in encaustic.

The application of wax, incising and scraping back, bring to mind the layers of our psyche, spirit, soul and body.
Circular progression is reminiscent of the concept that the spirit is our innermost being, the spirit wears the soul (which is our mind, will, and emotions) and the soul wears the body. Layers that make up who and what we are and will become.
