“Wings of Lace" and “Winged Halo” are part of my EMPI Collection. EMPI means "flying swallow" in traditional Japanese style Shotokan Karate, a style of martial arts I have practiced for 20 years to achieve a black belt. EMPI is a kata characterized by swooping up and down motions of this spirited bird. It inspires power, grace and movement infused in this design.
