Inspired by the cycles of life this hand-carved and hand-printed lino cut was made around Beltane 2020. An extraordinary time which marks the first day of summer; abundant with fertility, creativity and growth for the season ahead. This time also brings together the sky and the earth, the sky here represented in the sun, stars and cycles of the moon, and the earth represented by soil, seeds and the germination of a sunflower. The rays from the sun knit earth and sky together in loving union much like Flora the Goddess of Spring and the Green Man who were hand-fast at Beltane.
Sunny the sunflower represents summer, happiness, the solar plexus chakra, strength, vitality and of course sunshine. Place Sunny upon any wall that needs a little extra sunshine : )
Hamsa is a talismanic symbol that people believed to protect them from harm against the evil forces.
The Hamsa Hand or Hand of Fatima is an ancient Middle Eastern talisman. In all cultures it is a protective symbol that people believed would keep them from harm against the evil eye and bring them universal abundance, fertility, luck and good health. Traditionally the spread fingers of the right palm facing upwards shields us from our inner thoughts of hatred, jealousy and insecurities as well as being for powerful protection.
Within the borders of all 3 prints are traditional tribal north african symbols as used on the facial tattoos of Berber women, each associated with the themes of each print.
