Street offerings

I love the way in so many Asian countries
small offerings are put out in doorways,
shop entrances and especially outside
temples, churches or spiritual centres.

They are constant reminders of how
important spirituality is in our urban

I also love the way spiritual robes
somehow look so prefect within our cities .
Timeless and minimal, they are more
modern than any other form of dress.

In the west we have appropriated religious
imagery, often loving the drama or symbolic
to drive home a point or make an ironic
gesture. Although tongue in cheek,
they are still evidence of how powerful this
imagery is.
