This pastel is among the more strange of my creations, and to this I can only say there’s a lot going on here that I can only begin to put words to. We have a Raven in flight, carrying in his beak the fruit of the Blue-bead lily. Where exactly he is flying is not easily determined. There is a cluster of blooming lilies about him, and from the ground the bones of his ancestor rise up, beak open and ready to receive the offering. The roots of the lilies thread through the soil and finger the bones of the Raven Ancestor. In the sky there is a fog, through which we can discern Blue-bead lilies bearing the fruit of their flowers. In both the sky and the ground we can discern a Flower of Life pattern, and they seem to be almost like portals through which the Raven and his Ancestor have travelled to meet in this sacred space, where each can feed the other, and the cycles of life stay in balance.
