Featured Art: A Kaleidoscope Kraze
see The Sarika ArchWorks for the beginning of this exhibit tour of the artifacts found during the first phase of the Sarika archeological dig on Satashi. and the journal entry The Museum Exhibit of the Sarika Artifacts
NOTE BELOW EXHIBIT:
This is one of the Sarika shawls that only a partial reference was made in the Sarikanica. It seems that it has some significance in relationship to a ritual performed during the Hitakanti Festival and the wearer was perhaps the one performing the ritual. The Five Hundred Stairs may refer to what the Sarika call the Stairway to Sorn. Sorn in Sarika mythology is the place of wholeness or oneness.
As with all the work of the Sarika notice the detail, depth, texture and symmetry of the work. We have yet to unravel all the symbolism used. The Sarikanica is still being studied and there is hope that soon more insights will be found.
