This artwork featuring a rich crimson background, and outlined in black,
evokes celtic & Indigenous design. The spiral has always featured
in nature and has spiritual significance like the maze which, when
entered, leads the seeker on an inward quest for knowledge. In the painting
is an image of a tree woman drawing mankind into her arms and towards
her heart.

This artwork was created using pigmented beeswax applied with various
low-heat tools like an iron, heat gun, and electric stylus. The technique is known as “Encaustic” translated from the Greek “Encausticos” meaning “To burn in”. Encaustic art dates back to ancient Greece and Egypt when wax was used in religious icons, tomb portraits of Kings & Pharaohs, and to colour floor tiles.
