Zen Ribbon Blessing Book #1

$ 200.00

Hand-painted, sacred gold circle with silk ribbon page markers


Each Zen Ribbon Blessing Book is a sixteen-page book, with a single word handwritten on each of the internal pages, the sum total of which comprises a zen blessing. A sacred gold circle is hand-painted on the cover of the book.  When the blessing has been recorded on the interior of the book, it is sewn shut, with a silk ribbon marking a random page. That ribbon then hangs over the top of the book's cover and is then tucked through a slit on the cover, at the interior of the circle, and then hangs outside the bottom of the book. 

Unknown blessing 

The book is permanently sewn closed. The owner will never know the content of the blessing. Each blessing is written by Michael DeSoi.

Silk ribbon & shadowbox

Each poem book is mounted in a shadowbox frame. The ribbon for each book is cut to a random length and is inserted into the book with the intention of the ribbon falling onto the bottom of the shadowbox.
