I started with the castor bean leaf and a paper with the symbols. Before I knew what the symbols meant,I was thinking of balance and how our emotions and body can mirror each other at times. At a show, a young man interpreted the symbols to mean:
cry-back
laugh-belly
shout-body
out-bone
speak-heart

It is composed of assorted plant materials(some of which are: Castor bean leaf, fuchsia, ginkgo leaf), and handmade paper.
