God at his worktable

Artwork of God at his worktable. I didn’t realise at first but i think the different objects on the table are like symbolic representations of the different manifestations of the universe. The bridge of continuity, the ball of creation, the empty dome of possibility, the leaning books.

The Old Gods

I wrote this because i kept thinking about the many people that did not survive this time. My heart goes out to these people and the memory of them. The loved ones they leave behind who miss them. And the children and the future they have inherited. May we realise the interconnectedness of us all.

Two lovebirds on a branch

I made this as a gift for mum’s friend who invited us to her house for dinner. Its two love birds on a branch. Its kind of special to me because in this time of worldwide shortage of clay and materials like chain i managed to put this together for her. Very grateful for the opportunity to offer a meaningful gift to a friend who was so kind to feed us dinner and bought us cake.

Making mooncakes

This is my first attempt making mooncakes. Its not perfect but it tastes nice. I used blue pea flower to colour the mooncake blue and beetroot and rose essence + home made rose water for the pink mooncakes. The mold is a dragon. I always feel like the dragon is talking to me while i eat my mooncake. The dragon just looks talkative. The filling is brown sugar less sweet lotus paste. Its an enjoyable experience making mooncakes. Will try to improve. Much love to you all. Hope you are all finding creative things to do in lockdown or during Covid.

Visiting the God of the Nine Sky Heavens

Paying a visit to the God of nine sky heavens. After climbing through all the soul worlds to reach him, instead of having tea-he gave me healing. He was busy growing his spiritual green vines. Used for connecting mortals in the mortal realm to each other. With his hand on my back, i vomited a good quantity of blood. He steadied me and said nothing. We sat there for a long while before he sent me on my way

The Yin and Yang

This is my sketch of the yin and yang. I am looking at interpretation and this was the sketch. The two forces meet a the edge of a cliff one is the sun and one is water. The cliff is what we brush against in life. Man is the sun and energy woman is the water and fluid. Both are life giving in their own way. The sun rises and the water surges over the cliff. None can overpower the other. Each are balanced. 🙏🏻
