World of Manja Manse

Adam Merrigan.jpg
Swastika collage of pencils, pencil shavings on cardboard  A swastika made from eight trigrams as branches and a tri-colored taegeuk in the middle. The trigrams represent the eight elements of nature that bring life and peace to humanity. The swastika is a symbol of peace that appears in many cultures and religions, including Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism. It was tragically appropriated by the Nazi regime in the early 20th century as a symbol of nationalistic pride. This piece is meant to reclaim the symbol from this violent, horrific context and bring awareness to its peaceful origins. It is the symbol of “The World of Manja Manse.”
Art Inspired by Forgotten and Untold Histories
“Manja” is the Korean word for “Swastika,” a Buddhist symbol of peace. “Manse” means 10,000 years. Thus, 10,000 years of peace.
