30x40, 1996, acrylic/canvas
The cave opens to the universe or cosmic perspective. Water from Earth flows into it symbolizing our deep connection with the cosmic order, the mystery of which we are a part. The woman offers the flame of consciousness and wisdom to this order. A white owl hovers close to her, symbolizing her soul and wider perspective.
