A spiritual offering to you all.. first look at this Willow twig/branch sculpture I have been making from all the pruned pieces…since September 2012.. It is Ganapathy (Ganesh) the elephant-headed Hindu God of course. 🙂
It started with some difficult issues with neighbours..and I had to do a drastic prunning/ cutting of branches of my much loved Willow tree. But I promised that every piece will be used for a good reason..and this is one of them 🙂 (The other is a small one-person meditation hut by the tree, with branches covering parts of the sides (picture another time).
So I guess you could call it Eco-art.
Last week I created `tusks’ and repaired the wear & tear of the previous winter months.. and more work needed.. But now..there is another danger.. those birds are hunting for twigs…to make their nests 🙂
But hey, am sure Lord Ganesh won’t mind.. and neither do I 🙂
It charts the origins of how Elephantom came to be… in a far away Indian Village, where Priests spend their time in worship, and local wildlife Elephants) just mind their own lives… until danger comes in the form of Poachers.
You’ll get glimpses of Hindu spirituality, read the myths of Elephant-Headed God Ganesh.. and even get to read a little background about my childhood meetings with a Temple Elephant ! (well, it’s a story but much comes from my experiences!)
