Padme - Festival of Vesak cake collaboration

I made this piece for the beautiful Festival of Vesak cake collaboration
Padme means Lotus.
My piece is inspired by two buddhistic elements: The praying wheel and the Lotus.
I made a rotating structure with the cake on it, inspired by the Tibetan Praying Wheel. Instead of the holy symbols, I decorated the wheel with the meaning of the Lotus Blossom.
The pink lotus flower represents the history of Buddha and the historical legends of the Buddha. In Buddhism the Lotus blossom represent a heart opening.
The stage of growth the lotus flower is in, represents a different stage of enlightenment. A closed lotus flower represents the time before a Buddhist follower found Buddha or enlightenment. A lotus flower fully bloomed and open represents full enlightenment and self-awareness.
By rotating the structure the Lotus Bud will grow to a full bloom lotus.
You can see the video of the rotating cake here

I hand painted the Lady making a Lotus Mudra (hand gesture), where her hands are held at heart centre.

‘’ Feel connected to your roots, and remember that the greatest source of steadiness in life is an awakened heart.’’
