Firstly, what is a talisman?
A talisman is a tool for stirring the divinity and creativity that resides within you. It is a holy symbol to remind you of your wholeness.
A talisman is usually an object – either found or crafted – that holds symbolic significance. The symbolic power of a talisman can be translated and felt as an immediate tangible effect under certain conditions.
And what is an ART talisman?
At the deepest level, the creative process and the healing process arise from a single source. When you are an artist, you are a healer; a wordless trust of the same mystery is the foundation of your work and its integrity.Rachel Naomi Remen, MD
Art always emerges from the intersection between the mysterious and the obvious. It is the bridge between the invisible and the tangible. The artist marries the dynamic forces of existence through color, light and form.
It is this power of art to access multiple dimensions and to speak in multiple languages that is its healing capacity. Where a singular force pulls or pushes towards a state of increasing imbalance, art always offers a bridge to restore equilibrium.
When artists give form to revelation, their art can advance, deepen and potentially transform the consciousness of their community.Alex Grey
The artist that is healed by their art making, offers this healing to others in their artwork. So an artwork created under conditions of mindfulness, intuition, empathy and self-care is an artwork rich in restoration power for others.
When you commission an art talisman from us, you are inviting an intuitive artist – with years of experience in practicing meditation, contemplation, existential musing, shamanic and embodied practices – to open a space for a highly personal artwork to emerge.
How can I benefit from a talisman?
The value of an art talisman is directly dependent on your investment in its power to energize, uplift, heal, protect, contain, balance, calm, rejuvenate and illuminate you.
In your daily busyness, an art talisman can become a RESTORE POINT – an intimate sanctuary that offers integration and rejuvenation. The potential impact of your art talisman will exponentially increase as you practice deepening curiosity and contemplation.
