Balance Is A Thin Line

This new one is based on a couple of masks from Indonesia.  I was really taken with the culture there when I went a few years ago. Everyone there believes that art should be a part of daily life and is essential for living in balance. That is what I was trying to convey with this piece, balance.  The checkered patterns represent good and evil in their culture and you find the pattern everywhere as a reminder for them to live their lives with a purposeful balance.
