The exhibit displayed at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah was titled The Windows of Dzyan: A Theosophical Scrapbook; in addition to the sculptural work displayed it was also a comparison of the teachings of Theosophist Mme. Helena Petrovna Blavatski with the teachings of the Prophet and Founder of the LDS Christian Movement, Joseph Smith, Jr. - 19th Century Americans of distinctly unique vision. Using symbol as a vehicle to cultural understanding, the process of building the sculptures lead to an appreciation of the shared concerns, desires, and hopes of these diverse and disparate views. Through their vast differences, I learned to see the desire, intent, and hope for constructive growth we all possess in our shared humanity. Includes technical data on techniques and materials used.
