The Garden of Plenty

The divine feminine, mother earth, the dark magical mysteries that lie under the earth.  Feminine receptive energies where time is circular.

the wild masculine

Mmmm he stands proud, a jaguar draped across his shoulders.  Its no surprise I felt the need to surround him by horses, they respresent Power, grace, beauty, strength, wildness and freedom.  He represents the masculine energy in us all.  The bronze statue ‘Orpheus’ by Astrid Zydower,  is larger than life and stands in the grounds of Harewood House just outside Leeds, Yorkshire.  Orpheus was the greatest musician and poet of Greek myth, whose songs could charm wild beasts and coax even rocks and trees into movement.  His magnificence radiates from this image.  I put together the image with sky recently taken in malta, the land of the divine feminine, there are so many temples to the goddess here, it compelled me to produce a “balancing” image
