Wallace’s piece is an example of a Lichtenberg Figure which features branded electrical discharge. The piece was created by artist Tay Ghazi who explains: “Lichtenberg figures are often associated with the progressive deterioration of high voltage components and equipment. Lichtenberg figures are named after the German physicist Georg Christoph Lichtenberg, who originally discovered and studied them in the mid-1700’s.”

Ghazi is now pioneering “Spirit Art”, a process that utilizes cremated remains in conjunction with Lichtenberg figures. According to the artist’s Official Website:
“Tay offers a unique alternative to celebrating and memorializing a loved one. With a small amount of cremains, he captures the essence of your loved ones spirit in one of his signature Lichtenberg Figure art pieces creating a lasting, meaningful remembrance. Each piece is treated with the utmost care and respect following strict tracking and production methods.”
