About this work
When I think of Earth-centric utopian ideals, my mind immediately goes to the concept of peaceful co-existence between humans and our planet’s other animals. Owls have long since served as a symbol for wisdom and power, often a representative of pagan goddesses, Athena, Minerva, Cailleach, Arianrhod and others (hence the title of this piece – “Silent Wisdom”). I also wanted to include imagery symbolic of the Earth’s natural bounty and fertility – displayed here with the many sumptuous fruits, wines and plant life. If you look closely, you may notice one of the plums resembles our planet itself! This tranquil scene is a visual summary of the different kinds of life abundant on our planet, a microcosm of the important resources and relationships we need to conserve and protect.
