After a prolonged hiatus in posting, I'm able to post images again. These were made in January, shortly after my beloved 16 year old cat was diagnosed with kidney failure. These icons focus on healing mind and body for both of us.The top image show my cat in a Vietnamese community house, with symbols of the five seasons surrounding her The next one depicts powerful tiger goddesses in a Vietnamese Cao Dai temple. The third one takes place a Vietnamese Daoist temple with polar bear and bison bearing /being offerings with a "cost me an arm and leg" reminder at the bottom. The last image of the turtle brain is a metaphor for the calming effect of meditation and. hearkens back to my earlier undersea painting.
