The Scribe by Robert & Shana ParkeHarrison
There is the paradox of being human; in order to survive we must destroy. This paradoxical issue is represented in the destruction of the earth and our continued process of transforming and destroying nature. We are interested in the rediscovery of our lost relation to nature. Through the actions of ritual in out photographs we are able to explore these issues. We create and control entire scenes and freely manufacture metaphor, re-examine myths. and perform ritualistic acts. (From here.)
I'm not even going to comment on this piece, I'll just say I think it's absolutely fantastic.
This image is based in the idea of the Dalai Lamas reincarnation and his continued evolution and growth. The painting portrays the image of the Dalai Lama in his next incarnation as a young child is is a metaphor for growing, evolving, and transforming.
I absolutely adore this painting! It's been very inspiring to me, and hopefully I act on my plans and create the work I've been thinking of - it'll also be interesting to post it here and show you the similarities.
|A good role model for any young girl.|
|This isn't the best quality, but I couldn't find anything through reverse image searching. It's from a book about the Illuminati in American culture. I like these visuals.|
