Promise ...

She continued to love him deeply everyday, although he will never return to her. She knew that if she were the one who went to war, he would have done the same for her. It was a promise they made to each other
 
Many years pass and it came her time to leave too. She looked at the book one last time, and closed it. She locked it, and kept it in a safe place. 


For within those pages, 


lie her memories of him, and her heart ...


Perhaps one day, when another finds it, she and her love one would find 'happily ever after' and the heart within would start to beat once again


... Promise ...

timeless ...

“I have Loved you for a Thousand Years
 And I will Love you for a Thousand more


this song sung by Christina Perry is not only beautiful and haunting, it has the power to transport one to a different place and time where love is Forever Eternal. and age-old love stories are written in books that are stained with the elements of time, but never forgotten.

inspired by this thought and vision, i made TIMELESS ...

the intense surge of different emotions i felt during the creative process was ... one of a kind. i am SO in love with this piece ... so in love. 

this piece took me many hours to construct as each page was lovingly burned by incense and fashioned in a way that the burned hole in the middle of the page tapers towards a blood red heart. i have also included little features like miniature music notes, miniature love letters and miniature dictionary excerpts in between the stained blank pages. 

here is what i call 'the Progression' towards the core ...


i have however, left many untainted and unfilled pages behind this heart for the love stories of the next Thousand years.
i wonder who would write in them ...
