I don’t believe there can be any tangible evidence of the existence of faith.
An action, though, can suggest the conviction of one’s faith. Such is the practice of hanging strings of prayer flags out of doors, originated by the Tibetans. I consider it a great show of their faith that there is a heavenly body to hear their prayers sent on the wind.
For many years I have interpreted the Tibetan prayer flags using my own prayers and my own visual language. The layer of organza atop the flag serves two purposes. Physically, the organza responds to very subtle air movements so that the prayers can still be lifted towards the heavens even when hung inside and, metaphorically, it represents the mystery and complexity of faith.
