The 641 area code is mostly rural Iowa countryside with small to medium sized towns sprinkled throughout. A few miles outside of my town, a row of weathered vintage cars and trucks sits by the roadside, this Studebaker being one of them. A couple fields over, a wind farm rises from the horizon. The juxtaposition of the two is a fitting portrayal of the region.
It’s rich with history and tradition, yet embraces new ideas and technology — evolving with the times while remembering the past. The state bird, a goldfinch, sits perched on the truck’s hood ornament reminding the viewer of Iowa’s natural beauty and reinforcing the importance of maintaining a sustainable planet for generations to come.
“Inspired by Balinese mask carving, Thai Buddhism and Hindu symbolism, the illustration acknowledges our current age of perpetual war and the underlying fear that is permeating much of humanity. This piece is meant to be hung in your home as a positive reminder that we can learn to remain courageous amidst the chaos. Through the practice of meditation, it is possible to gain the realization of our immortal nature beyond the physical body, conquering the fear of death and bringing light to where there was once only darkness. The Sanskrit mantra asks Lord Shiva to grant us liberation and recognition of this cosmic truth.
When you purchase this poster, you will help raise support for The Living/Dying Project, which is a non-profit organization committed to helping people with life-threatening illnesses face death without fear, so that they may enter the unknown with an open heart.” – Palehorse
