Moss Painting by Usha Seejarim

As a contribution to Mandela week Usha Seejarim created a moss painting at St James school in Belgravia.
In response to the school's theme of growth, she created a growing artwork of the yoga “tree pose” on one of the school's white walls. In the artist's words:
" alludes to our innate connection to the environment as human beings that can literally grow when nurtured. St James is a value based school where meditation, stillness and respect are key practices that are built into the curriculum. As such, this image and the concept of a growing artwork are completely apt for this environment. In the last 2 weeks it has been amazing to see the moss beginning to develop, despite the severe cold."
