Ornamental Thoughtfulness

Every so often I see that someone is doing something out of the ordinary that is simple, meaningful and moving.

Mary Whalley describes herself as an artist and an educator here.

Here is a link to Ornamental Thoughtfulness which was featured in the DomPost newspaper yesterday. The short article and photo caught my eye.

The following is written by Mary and tells you a little more

In upcoming weeks a series of little bronze hands will be installed in central Wellington. In walkways, shortcuts and places people pass on their paths to work or school. Their purpose is to hold offerings. Anonymous tokens of generosity or thoughtfulness. My intention is that others will use the little hands too, for leaving small items.

You noticed, thank you.

I think her work and purpose deserves highlighting and acknowledging. It touched something deep inside me.
