DAINIUS_BENDIKAS

A sculpted ever-wondering space philosopher - a mind traveller. A character with a dynamic inner personality. A multidimensional infinity - his mind is wide open, perfectly calm, yet simultaneously levitating. It is a paradox that everyone is here for the same reason and yet everyone has an individual purpose. Everyone is here to experience life as deeply as possible, and yet your individual purpose is to explore your unique character. Everyone, therefore, has an unique function within the infinite variety of Creation. At least 95 percent of our “material” world is, in fact, immaterial, a sort of “pure energy” with no mass or volume. When we move through levels of understanding our infinite one-self, suddenly we wake up and realize we chose to be here, right here right now. This motley crew of moon monks is composed of a miscellany of characters who share a profound emotional thread that is marked by their continuous evolution. Each look of the collection is connected via a color-range based on the changing surface of the moon during the lunar eclipse of June 26, 2010.
