DescriptionZodiac is an astrological clock of sorts; the disc is a mechanical device which rotates with the rising and setting of the constellations.Twelve pillars stand with crystal spheres perched at the top. Each pillar and sphere energetically connects to its corresponding constellation, charging the crystals with the energy of that astrological sign. The energies are harnessed by the central crystal, which provides the power for the rotating disc.
Ellen McDonough, Mountain View Member Since December 2008 Artist Statement My passion is creating beautiful, mystical places; I have had visions of these places all my life and I believe they actually exist in higher realms. These sanctuaries typically features classical architecture set against a vibrantly-colored landscape scene.
In addition to the visions I have had, my inspiration comes from my obsession with Atlantis and ancient Egypt, my love of architecture, and my fascination with astrology, symbols, sacred geometry and the night sky.
I grew up in Rhode Island and as an adult have lived in Massachusetts, Arizona and California. Currently I spend summer & fall in Boston and winter & spring in California where I market my images as prints, canvas-wraps, greeting cards, journal books and magnets.
In addition to art, I am also a travel photographer, so visit www.earthwisdom.com for a virtual journey around the world
It is my hope that my designs offer people inspiration, a sense of peace, and a feeling of being taken away to a beautiful respite far from everyday concerns.
