Wu Lou in 24kt Gold-Plated Steel

Wu Lou in 24kt Gold-Plated Steel

This is my representation of an Asian Wu Lou (see below) and is made of stainless steel that has been plated with 24kt gold.

The Wu Lou or Hu Lu is said to have the ability to absorb bad chi energy, and the reason that Taoist monks use the calabash to imprison evil spirits. According to Chinese mythology, Monks and Deities of the Taoist belief made use of the calabash Wu Lou by imprisoning evil spirits inside to stop them from causing more problems. This is where the Wu Lou got the ideology of being able to absorb negative chi in your surroundings.

The Wu Lou was originally used as a Feng Shui cure as a health enhancer and protector as the calabash was used to store medicine although traditional medicine would usually be a wine or spirit which is how the Wu Lou was adapted in to a wealth cure as alcohol became a symbol of wealth.

Inukshuk “sculpture”

This is an Inukshuk “sculpture” that I created to test out Shapeways new ceramic material a few months ago. It was a test for Shapeways, too, and the material has been temporarily suspended while they determine if it will be brought back. So, for the time being, and maybe forever, this is the only model that exists…
