Burning Basket of Love & Freedom

February 2009 - Maui, Hawaii

Maui, Hawaii was the location for number 14 in the Burning Basket series. Constructed of mulberry branches, hibiscus, citronella grass, palm and tea leaves. The 6'  basket sculpture, a heart with wings, was created by Mavis Muller.

The sculpture, Pulse - Basket of Love & Freedom, was installed on the Ke'anae Peninsula, Maui, as part of the second annual Source Interactive Art Festival.

Pulse; rhythmic beating of a heart; to beat, throb, or vibrate with excitement; perceptible emotions of a group of people.

All were invited to interact with the heart basket in the theme of gratitude, beauty, togetherness, and releasing.

As the finale of the event Pulse - Basket of Love & Freedom was ignited and met its conclusion through fire releasing the sentiments in sparks and flames.

Note; Pulse burned concurrently with another heart shaped basket sculpture also created by Mavis Muller on the New Mexico/Mexico border named Unity - Basket of Non-Separation.  The two flaming hearts burned at sundown on 2-22-09.From my heart to your heart, de mi corazon a tu corazon.

"We join in a revolutionary action of art that connects the Hawaiian Islands, New Mexico, and Chihuahua, Mexico. The sparks of Aloha, love & freedom join in the night sky with the sparks of non-separation for all our relations. With love the heart has wings." - Mavis Muller, workshop facilitator
