Eve Reborn as the Phoenix II by 


I first made this as a black ink drawing , with this description :

The feeling of original sin (devil underneath), of an innate “wrongness” or badness, or just of inadequacy—covered with masks of poise or crazy-making, depending on personality, or even mood. But even the furniture is bored with that story. “The truth will out,” as they say.

Then, zapatil2000 on Flickr added this comment, which really got me thinking even more…

“Some details here makes my mind wander towards Gnostic cosmology. The scene reminds me of a prison tower, so maybe it depicts how the Demiurge has captured the self-created earth (the fallen Sophia or cosmic Eve) in the inorganic realm of celestial mechanics where we, according to the Gnostics, are continually fooled by appearances?

Sophia was however able to generate a daughter in her own image, the flame-born timeless life-force, who escaped to unite with the sun to nourish humanity with imagination and vitality from a distance.

As the Phoenix bird! So instead of using perceptual errors in evil or deceptive ways, we can use them for magic, creativity and surrealism, she seems to say.

True or not, that´s the story I saw here.

(And I hope my telling it didn´t bore the furniture! ; ))"

Far from boring the furniture, it excited me, and led me to explore more. I hope to have a chance to write more about this soon. I hope to be around more soon! Thanks for looking!
