The Working Proof: Mark Warren Jacques - The Things I Think Dangle From Me Like This

This new print by Mark Warren Jacques reminds me of Native American dream catchers, a symbol of protection that "caught any harm that might be in the air as a spider's web catches and holds whatever comes in contact with it" (Wikipedia). Rather than catching harmful things, The Things I Think Dangle From Me Like This captures and displays the positive elements of our selves - beliefs, knowledge, truth. As Mark describes the piece:
The Things I Think Dangle From Me Like This is a piece about self awareness and self exploration. The diamond shape with descending steps of blue into outer space represents the mind and its structured infinite nature. The dangling charms are our beliefs, our knowledge, and our truths, if you will. We wear these truths for all to see - they are our history, and in many ways, our self-worth.
Beautiful! 15% of each print sold will be donated to Farm Sanctuary. Buy the print here, and read our interview with Mark here.
