花葬™ Embraced by Grace™

每一个孩子,都是父母亲的心头肉。孩子不管多小或多老,都是爸爸妈妈,阿公阿嬷心中的牵挂。 但是,如果婴儿或小孩不幸往生,根据华人礼俗来说,他们是不能行如成年人或老人家一般的停丧丧礼仪式。 在这种情况下,从婴儿或小孩往生开始,至宗教仪式到火化阶段,通常是1天或2天的过程。整个丧礼过程,感觉在往生的孩子的长辈们还没时间真正的平抚悲痛之际,已经圆满结束了。 每当我们帮助不幸早逝的婴儿或小孩时,委托我们的阿公阿嬷爸爸妈妈们,他们心中那波涛汹涌的悲痛,那沉沉的心情,那撕心裂肺的哀嚎,往往都深深的打动我们在场的每一个人。 有些胎儿胎死腹中,有些婴儿出生之后不久便不幸过世。有些情况下,胎儿的母亲需要留在医院疗养康复,不能亲自到火葬场亲眼见证,亲自送他们孩子那最后一程。那股悲恸与无助,将会在慈母的心中留下一道很深很深的烙印。 每当遇到这种情况时,往往心中会想,我能够为他们做多一些什么,来安抚他们的悲伤。 机缘之下,认识了陈之财大哥。陈之财大哥不只是一位名人,他也是很多人都赞赏的艺术家,画家,同时也是众所周知的好丈夫,好父亲。 于是在一次聚餐时,和他提议了我的点子。心中很有爱的大哥,一口就答应了,和我的想法产生了共鸣。 这幅手绘画,是陈之财大哥,非常用心的手绘作品。每一笔,每一画,都是代表着我们心中深深的祝福,也代表我们亲切的慰问。 “光” 代表纯真的孩子,被上天照顾。孩子在被天上的天使指引着方向,为他护航,直达天堂的怀抱。 “彩虹“代表孩子的纯真 “花圃“ 每一朵花,代表着我们每一份祝福,每一份祈祷,每一份慰问。 “花葬“™ 愿往生的孩子在天堂里,百花盛开的花圃中,自由自在,无忧无虑的嬉戏奔跑。 以此作品,希望通过艺术,能为往生的孩子的阿公阿嬷,爸爸妈妈,带来亲切的安慰,带来温馨的安抚。 — Usually when babies or young children unfortunately passes away, the funeral process is usually a very quick one. Babies and young children whom passes away before their time usually won’t hold a wake, unlike adults, which allows […]
