The silhouette of the Samaka was designed to mimic the soft curve and balanced form of a fish. When I contemplate on the fish, I envision their grace, beauty, and the sense of serenity they bring. In this modern day, we are constantly confronted with generators of stress. Not that stress is necessarily negative, it has a place and function- yet, the ability to cloud our judgement. Elements of nature can offer a prompt back towards an even keel. When we bring animals, such as fish into our homes, offices, or dwelling spaces they also bring with them an atmosphere of calm and relaxation.
My intention for the Samaka Ring is to serve as a reminder to relax and find center.
