I included this saying, “your body is a temple,” because whatever your body goes through it stays as a beautiful mechanism in this world. Our bodies are incredible machines that should be respected as such and I wanted to have this saying in my artwork to remember this idea.

  1. I love this, but wanted to also share this quotation. Personally, I am more comforted by this:
    “Listen to me, your body is not a temple. Temples can be destroyed and desecrated. Your body is a forest—thick canopies of maple trees and sweet scented wildflowers sprouting in the underwood. You will grow back, over and over, no matter how badly you are devastated”.
    -Beau Taplin
