Intro
Katja Prins Bound by Blood brings together and mixes various prayer-necklaces, which only differ in details, a contemporary blood red jewel is created referring to our mutual bond as well as to the blood shed in the name of a religion.
In several religions prayer-necklaces are for use at prayers: the rosary of Roman Catholics, the tespi with which Turkish Muslim men play, and the juzu and mala of the Buddhists. Basically, prayer beads are not a necklace, not a piece of jewellery. Bringing together and mixing various prayernecklaces,
which only differ in details, create a contemporary blood red jewel referring to our mutual bond as well as to the blood shed in the name of a religion.
