This work is a three-dimensional sculpture but it was intentionally created to look like two sides of a coin. The front is about pleasures. Its shape presents the mundane content regarding defilements and cravings. The back is about a reminder. Its shape presents the dharmic content— a lotus-like gear wheel and human being. Therefore, there are ideas and meanings to express emotions and feelings which then become thoughts and imaginations.
