    throat and crosses on the chest nearest the heart chakra The bull skull and human skull represent her spirit totem animal and I think a soul fragment returning I developed these further by adding more colours You can see the same colours appearing in all 3 images I say her because I don t actually know who the figure is at this stage I added hair in black pencil purple black and grey oil pastels and she became the wild woman or crone figure A bull skull has appeared in another painting of mine it was one I painted during Pixie Campbell s Visual Quest last year I have yet to complete that one though Jesse mentioned that to him the bull skull represents stamina On further investigation the bull is symbolic for many cultures and belief systems The Celtic bull symbol represents strong will in astrology the bull is Taurus in Chinese culture it stands for determination and perseverance in ancient Sumeria it symbolises protection and guardianship and the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet based on a pictograph and symbolises man s ability to work with Mother Nature and her creatures and symbolises harmony The skull is a soul fragment I believe this emerged due to a recent soul retrieval healing I had It s like I m moving towards putting all the pieces of my puzzle back together and leaving behind what no longer serves me The bright green leaves represent new growth and blossoming possibility The branch antlers and leaves were originally painted by hand up until the last layer where I used a brush to define them more I know why the antlers became branches it is because I feel most at peace and deeply connected when I am out in nature Walking in a national park is bliss to me I think the wild woman crone is a message to look within for answers to trust my intuition rather than being overly influenced by others and their opinions Silence the external noise so the answers within become audible enough to hear I now feel that this painting has evolved into a self portrait of sorts She is all the messages healing and storytelling I have within me now on paper The intention is now to trust that the answers will come and that they will emerge from myself rather than elsewhere I hope you ve enjoyed reading this post I will be making this a regular feature with 2 more artworks to come in the next week or 2 What do you think Is this something that interests you I would also love to read any posts you have on your art or artwork that you like please feel free to link in the comments tia link 10 4 2014 07 40 14 I loved reading this post I loved how you pointed out the symbolism and healing messages it had for you The painting is very cool I love the colors Sharyn 10
