New life grows from ruins. Just as mushrooms grow from rotting mulch, transforming death’s matter and redistributing it into the ecosystem, we transform after catastrophic change. May everything that you have learned and lost be the building blocks that feed your future. Amaranth is an everything-plant, it’s a nutrient dense grain, and a beautiful, abundant, everlasting flower. Immortelle flowers are a symbol of eternity and never drop. The physalis, or chinese lantern, appears in the autumn amongst the other dying plants and glows bright orange. Even after they have all been cut off from the roots, these plants thrive and hold seeds for many more iterations of themselves to survive. This mask has antique porcelain dentures for teeth and the shadow aspect mask on the reverse says “New Life Thrives from Ruins”.
