The title of this piece is the Chinese ideogram of the Japanese word for “beauty”, but a beauty that is connected with the idea of sacrifice, as this ideogram is composed of two ideograms, 羊 (sheep) on the top and 大 (great) on the bottom. A sheep is a considered the lowest of animals and has been commonly used for sacrifice in various cultures throughout history, most notably of the Judeo-Christian Faith. This piece is born out of that complex pool of thoughts, feelings, and ideas, which are also guided by my inspiration from Diane Duane’s Star Trek novel Spock’s World.
