Hermes - Offrandes D'un Jour

Generous Carre
"A light yet meaningful ceremony: each morning during the harvest season, the women of Kerala, a state in southwest India, use flower petals to make concentric designs representing divinities, sacred symbols and animals on the ground. These temporary works of art disappear over the course of the day only to be made again the next morning with an additional color, up until the tenth day when the designs burst into fireworks of color. Hermes decided to take part in this ritual. In purchasing the Offrandes d’un jour carre, you will help the Indian NPO CRY(Child Rights and You), which provides children with an education." - by
