This paper is autobiographical, based on a period where my sister and I successfully embarked on a healing journey separated by half the world. As an artist I utilised the painting of artifacts as tangible prayers to invoke healing. This case study is discussed under a number of headings based on the sequence of events. Such events stimulate many avenues of thought which give rise to some questions about accepted beliefs. Ultimately it is a story that unfolds through the art, and about the art that was inspired by the stages of my sister's healing.
