You know what I think one powerful meaning of the 2 lions and a lamb, or mercy seat, or throne of God, is? I think its the heart and lungs. We know this, feel it and perhaps feel that is the seat of our divinity; our heart.
I was working on the mane just a few minutes ago, and one little piece of it was stretched out towards the thumb of the child. I thought, hmmm, let’s make them touch and thought that special moments, symmetries or maybe peculiar things that are so great when captured in photography are easily possible by will in a painting. And I erased the end of the mane and stretched it to touch the thumb and I felt this great energy go through me and I still feel all tingly and I felt as though a piece of a mane, a divine mane, touching a human is like touching a ray of the sun. Either that or its all the M&Ms I just ate kicking in, hee hee.
Looking at this it is now reminding me of wings on the head. I was moving some change today and found a mercury dime which actually shows winged liberty. ….reminds me of it.
Here is a nice picture with a similar feel I found tonight:
That lion’s name is Jupiter and he was rescued from a circus nearly starved to death. That woman takes care of many animals rescued from similar situations – she is a hero in my book.
(ETA: I found a video of this and it’s even better than the picture, if that’s possible – the lion Jupiter hugging the hero Ana Torres: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YEyKS2P_j20)
