Three globes levitate above lapping waves. Are they low moons, pulling the tide? Or perhaps, three Cintamani wishing stones, rising from the waters? In Hinduism, the mythical sea creature Makara was said to hold the Cintamani jewel in its head; in Buddhism, it is obtained from the dragon king of the sea. Taking the form of a resplendent pearl, these enchanted stones offered one the key to enlightenment. In dense wool velvet, Cintamani is rendered in endless repetition, echoed like a mantra, or the endless lap of waves.
