|"Potential" by Cristina McAllister
This piece features a character who has shown up in my sketchbook off and on over the past 10 years. I don't have a name for her, but she seems to represent the magic of Life, of wisdom, of growth and goodness.
|Detail from "Potential"
She's part woman, part tree; an ambassador of Life in it's many forms. She often carries a lantern, which indicates to me that she is a guide - a light-bearer to lead one through darkness. She is also adorned with many spiral motifs - ancient symbols of outflowing energy, growth and evolution.
Here she holds a symbol called the Seed of Life, which she is nurturing with her breath to sprout into branches which entwine with her own. The central medallion features open locks and keys - symbols of unlocking potential.
