The ‘Earth Guardian’ has come to me from shields, from leaves, from feathers. Her colour is the reddy brown tones of soil. I love this gentle feminine form that rises from the earth, barely touching it, yet her cloak-like shield is encompassing and incorporating the rhythms of the life that flow like a river around her inner body. Her inner body comes inspired from a beautiful twig I have found with the seed pods stuck to the surface, like symbols of fertility and abundance.
