In this artwork I am using the stag to represent Nature / The forest / The Primal World and he is being anointed by the orbs with the powers of Nature. The blue orb represents the world. I used three orbs because three is a sacred number in many myths / religions / cultures. The blue orb has the four cardinal points marked on it representing North / South / East / West as well as representing the four seasons.
