“SYOWT’s Stone Bowl” resides in the intertidal zone at the end of a small point, jutting south into Ganges Harbour on Salt Spring Island, the traditional and unceded territory of the Hul’q’umi’num’ and SENĆOŦEN speaking peoples. A feminine symbol, the bowl is a vessel of transformation, reflecting the moon and offering a medium for eternal truths. It captures a fraction of the sea and transforms it into a mirror. In this liminal space, we see the world reflected, the possibility of rebirth and renewal. My photograph pays homage to this ancient stone art.
