Price: $850

COSMOS arose from reading Arnold Zable's novel, 'Sea of Many Returns', in which one character constantly struggles with the idea of the cosmos. not as something remote, but as a metaphor for each person's search for meaning. The jumble of colours at the centre represents the chaos of life, which is held, on all sides, by the quiet blue of Infinity.
