Transcendence is a being that is connected to the Grand Spirit that connects to everything and is everything. Life comes down from the Grand Spirit when the heart and the humanness are open, this is when activation happens. The heart center is open in this form and is shown in a raw color and form to represent the humanness. The base of the piece is burnt to show the connection to the Earth. Our humanness has to stay connected to the Earth in order to fully experience life. The bent wood halo is open to the ground and the heavens and is reaching out from the sides to connect with other beings, spirits, and the universe.
