'Service' - Nirvana of Shibari, Acrylic Limited Edition

A shibarika serving tea, this image reflects the dreams and feelings of nirvana and enlightenment that can be attained through willing service to another. Posed proudly, shot at equal height to the subject, the rope is not a symbol of forced servitude, but rather the choice of meaningful personal sacrifice and the removal of the self. The hair gives credit to the Japanese origins of hojujitsu and shibari, practiced around the world.
