After a Buddhist celebration is held at a local temple, we collect massive loads of discarded lotus flowers to dry. The petals are burned and the ash is then stored for twelve months, blended with rain water.
This lotus flower ink is used in my artworks.
I collected thousands of discarded lotus flowers, originally offered at temples this September. I am now preparing another batch of ink, which should be fixed by this time next year. Yet preparing this “sacred ink” is only one of many other things happening with my art.
