Channa wrote to me:
This sculpture was created as a proposal for a Temple. I call it Star of David, Prayer Vessel. In the back of the Star of David is an empty large container completely enclosed with a small hole in the side. I envisioned this sculpture 6' tall and placed in the lobby of a Synagogue. I also envisioned people writing out small prayers and placing them into the small hole on the side of the sculpture. I envisioned these prayers disintegrating over time and generations of prayers placed on top, so that many generations of prayers would commingle and turn to dust.
