Medium: Hand made inks, bleach, emulsion and gesso.
The poem is written from the perspective of man, clumsily stumbling upon a clearing to an undisturbed ritual of mother nature. Although not mentioned in the poem, I have decided to paint the scene of a fallen stag. The broken antlers of another stag still stuck in the dead one. The stag is a powerful symbol for shamans and many of the symbols are male related.
To bind all the elements of the forest clearing I have used an intricate web of roots, antlers, the tree tops are antlers, as are the birds. All the natural elements are connected as they are in the wild.
