art and nature tangled in thorny vines of vulture bones and crow feathers.
I saw a seated figure, draped with head down. As I approached, she stood up and as she raised her head, I had a sense she was the archetypal spirit of Praying Mantis.
Full size on flickr (as usual).
I see feathered wings (at least in this smaller version). Hecate or the Cailleach.
She needs a story as well.
no feathers…look closer, they are more insect-like and veined. i don’t think this one has anything to do with human gods/goddesses. pure nature spirit–before the gods. i actually saw this one during a shamanic journey.
Ooh. Shamanic Journeys.
I love this picture.
i’m forever amazed at how fast you can do these…
it only seems fast because all the hard stuff gets done in my head. what you see is just the follow-up.
