THE BLUE OBELISK is the underpinning element in this exciting work.
Symbolically the colourful bird rests upon this icon of creativity awakening the world to the beginning of the new day.
An OBELISK is often looked at with phallic observations while the powerful force of the SODALITE STONE is associated with positive energy, truth, inner peace and harmony.
Its beautiful colouration reflects that of the bird who is cheekily holding a pair of tantalising ripe cherries while humorously sporting a tarboosh [Fez]. Other North African imaging contained in stylised palm decoration and shadows across a cartouche of MOROCCAN TILES, while Tifinagh glyphs appear in the dust of the background.
The lone figure riding through the dreamscape can be seen as continuing an ODYSSEY in which numerous opportunities occur as either synchronous or random events.
