The Mendicant. A sculpture created by Robert Wechsler. He interlaced perfectly notched pennies to create extraordinary copper cubes. Beautiful.
Mendicant is a term for one who has no possessions, is supported by the goodwill of others, and relies exclusively on charity to survive. Typically a position assumed after living a productive life and attending to all worldly concerns, a Mendicant is considered honorable. To be a Mendicant is to make a conscious choice to sacrifice conventional concerns in favor of humility, modesty and enlightenment.
