sesenmoon is the symbol and the artist.
the visual story surrounding the project atempleofthemoon,
which is about self-care and about creation or ideas that are
created around the phases of the moon.
An exploration of self expression through
the divine quest to seek higher consciousness.
Created by Ciara Bird in 2017 as a temple to document her journey, evolution and ascension back to self —
through a holistic lifestyle, healing, independent study, culture, creation, yoga, art, words, and spirituality.
The meaning of the African word SESEN is to wish for more—
it is what Ancient kmt called the lotus symbol.
As an artist, designer, new mama, and maker — I have set out to slowly refine and give life
to a collection of timeless essentials created in small batches for both the temple and the nest.
Inspired by the countless muses I have met, interviewed, worked and lived with over the last few moons,
and pulling deep from my childhood reveries, each collection celebrates self love, transformation and ritual.
In a world filled with instant gratification, I have dedicated myself to slowing down
the process of making, using and doing, returning my attention towards consciously
collecting, reusing, and finding more peace, health and happiness in daily life.
