New work: "Potential" Mandala

"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.   

Starcode message from "Potential"

The circular band contains a starcode message.  You can find more information on my starcode here, if you want to try your hand at decoding it:
