Guardian No. 221

Guardian No. 221…searching for the sweet nectar of life

Using her long beak, she probes for the sweet nectar of life. She flourishes among green things growing as she hums a peaceful melody that echoes out into the world. Through her mind’s eye, she manifests a world overflowing with scent and beauty. Wrapped in the colors of the rainbow, she busily darts about like a hummingbird, finding comfort dwelling in small spaces.

Her heart center is represented by a carved circular bead the color of the dark deep rich soil that she carefully tends to bring birth to her passion. 

Everywhere she travels she leaves a trail of color as she paints the landscape. This Guardian takes flight on a re-purposed bed spring emerging from a hand-painted reclaimed wood block base measuring approx. 20″ tall x 8″ wide by 11″ deep. Sewn to the back of the Guardian’s right wing is a tiny bell, representing my mother’s playful spirit. Its gentle sound is a reminder to listen to the whispers of your heart.
