Earth Wind Water

Earth Wind Water - giclee print on canvas 48" W x 24" H

 

Many old European Pagan beliefs are based on the four elements...Earth, Air, Fire and Water. These four Elements correspond to the four directions of our physical world, the four quarters of the universe, the four winds, and most importantly the four quarters of a magical circle. Fire and Air are generally considered male energies....Water and Earth female. In this belief system, the Elements are energy forces that make up the universe and everything in it.

 

My collage piece "Earth, Wind, Water" represents three of the four spiritual elements.

 

Earth:

The source and provider of all our needs. Represents sensations, decay, patience, stability, strength, health, warmth and comfort, trees and plants, animals and animal instincts including humans.

 

Air (wind):

Air represents mental activity, thoughts, reason and intellect, memory, knowledge, persuasion, birth and friendship, freedom, clarification and expression. It is often symbolized by wind, clouds and sky.

 

Water:

Water imbibes all life forms and in us we flow with the "tide" of our feelings. It involves intuition, insight, conception and pregnancy, fertility, the womb, health, beauty and divination.
