Mala Beads Project

This project involves taking traditional Buddhist Mala Beads.. and creating a large scale sculpture of them.

Mala is a Sanskrit word meaning “meditation garland”. The string is comprised of 108 beads + 1 larger Bindu bead. It’s primary function is to count breath and mantras during meditation.

I am making a large scale sculpture of them now.. each bead will reference someone doing good in the world..still working out that idea..
