DNA strands of winding trunk strong old tree, wise in the world sheltered beauty of dark and light
Magnificent Trees have life cycles that echo our own. They start small and spend years getting established. They need quantities of fresh water, using it as the basis for their circulation, as we do. Trees grow best in healthy communities, creating entire ecosystems for other life forms.
The Tree has been a symbol of strength and integrity for many cultures. Often known as The Tree of Life or the World Tree, real and imaginary animals are often part of the myths that surround them.
In this pendant, I show the Tree with a spiral trunk of DNA. The Sun, Moon Phases and Raven all complement its symbolism. The human connection is supported on the reverse side, by the hands lifting towards the starry sky.
