With its large rays of light and reflective quality, the Ruler mirrors the sun in its ability to light up its surrounding environment. The pyramid-like pattern is to be used to reference back to my indigenous background and serve as a foreground for what be a traditional temple or place of worship. To feel the light, to feel her embrace and connection back to her people is the idea behind this piece. The reality that is every crevice of this world is at one point touched by the suns rays, this is her strength, this is her power
