DescriptionThe ancestors watch from the stars above while the world turns and the sun and the moon practice their eternal dance between light and dark creating the threshold times for magic. The serpent rests in the roots of the great world tree in the underworld, there since the beginning of time. Yggdrassil contains a web connecting all, it is a doorway, a cosmology. The original was drawn on recycled tea-stained paper with archival inks and water soluble coloured pencils.
Sarah Lawless, Pacific Northwest Member Since November 2010 Artist Statement I’m a folk magic practitioner with a focus in Scottish witchcraft and folk magic. I am a woodcarver, charm maker, wildcrafter, mead maker, healer, as well as a diviner and mystic. I live in the Pacific Northwest on my ever-green mountain in the rainforest. I started drawing and painting at a young age and went from finger paints to the wonderful world of watercolors, tempera, inks, clay, paper maché, and so many other mediums. Today I work mainly within the realms of textiles, woodcarving, and ink illustrations.
