Drawing challenge: EARTHLY



 Mostly I fly...


but now I set out for earth. I look down. Following force of gravity.


'Earth to earth...' in my mind. End and begin of life.




 Rooted.



I find creatures that reminds me on India. Afrika.


 

Music and pieces of healing jewellery 



a fossilised root wood


a garnet crystal.

After dancing pelvis circling and stone meditation I finally settle down. 





Form with clay a shape of a four-leaved Lotus.
The first chakra. The base chakra. 
Feel the connection to Mother earth (and divine Father)
Bodily. Earth(l)y.



Thank you, dearest Patrice!
Even for beeing our host for the this week's drawing challenge with this 'heavy' theme EARTHLY.

Please come to her beautiful, impressive place to see much
 more based art of other participants.

  10. es ist wieder beeindruckend, was baumriesen in uns auslösen. ich bekomme immer das gefühl von ganz-fest-verwurzelt-sein. deine fotos haben mir gerade die standfestigkeit gegeben. die schlichte tönerne lotosblüte mag ich auch sehr.

  11. The lotus clay bowl is perfection. A lovely containing and yet not permanent vessel. It is of the earth, could hold earth and water and stones and crystals and a whole lot of things, including air. It may be able to hold fire for a period as well. It's a grand thing. *smiles* Norma
