‘Woman of the Rainbow’
‘Woman of the Rainbow’ is both a song I wrote on ecological / spiritual themes and a symbolic figure represented in a mural. She is a mythic guardian of the land, a figure of renaissance.
The glass front of your chakra exudes the four elements that create the physical world. The heart chakra infuses the Rainbow spirit.
In the throat, chakra (communication), I have placed a modified version of the Catalan star. She holds an olive branch in one hand and the geometry of honeycomb in the other.
Bees, just as ideas, pollinate and reap the sweet and rich energy of life to store them for use in the beautiful and vast symmetry of their constructions.
The hare, with Amphora is a symbol, in many cultures cheat creativity out of chaos. I have also included some olive groves and flowers that are native to Catalonia. A deer, often appears in my art, acts as a guide to magical places. Finally, a wild gecko, because I see them every time I visit the the village.
