MOTHER SHRINE - BURNT SIENNA
In the lightless realm of germination, earth's womblike interior enfolds and unfurls in measure with the timeless motion of her seasons.
A mighty pulse expands and contracts as insemination is followed by birth is followed, in time, by death.
Like the hieroglyphs on the walls of ancient temples, the history of her body temple is embedded in her rocks and layered in the soil and strata of time - fossilized runes decode the eons of her existence.
Behind all artifice and ideated constructs of the sacred, beneath layers of meaning and interpretation, is THE MOTHER, who gives from herself and who calls back into herself. She is both the beginning and the end.
Ever self-creating, she forces magma up through deep vents from her interior, its contact with earth's atmosphere solidifies her ever-renewing body.
