The Masks of God
Pencil on a sticky note!!
A study of the human face and its features. I did those four back in 2016. They can be wonderful bookmarks. (if they behave themselves) :-)

“The child's world is alert and alive, governed by rules of response and command, not by physical laws: a portentous continuum of consciousness, endowed with purpose and intent, either resistant or responsive to the child itself. 

This infantile notion of a world governed by moral rather than physical laws, kept under control by a superordinated parental personality instead of impersonal physical forces, and oriented to the weal and woe of man, is an illusion that dominates men's thoughts all over the world.

The sense then, of this world as an undifferentiated continuum of simultaneously subjective and objective experience (Participation), which is all alive (Animism), and which was created by a superior being (Artificialism), may be said to constitute the frame of reference of all childhood experience no matter where in the world. 

No small wonder then, that the above Three Principles are precisely those most represented in the mythologies and religious systems of the whole world.”

Ouroboros
Very much inspired by John Howe's sketch:

The Ouroboros
___________________________________________________________________________________________


My latest endeavour into the world of the occult. I did this one as a sort of a tribute to Carl Jung and the illustrator John Howe. It is very much inspired by all sorts of natural as well as supernatural things of life and philosophies, but the major and central theme is ART and SCIENCE. For both Art and Science create what we term, MAGIC. In reality what MAGIC actually is and represents is the SCIENCE and ART of causing CHANGE to occur in conformity with WILL. The meaning of the Ouroboros is always open for interpretations though. As Carl Jung wrote:

"The alchemists, who in their own way knew more about the nature of the individuation process than we moderns do, expressed this paradox through the symbol of the Ouroboros, the snake that eats its own tail. The Ouroboros has been said to have a meaning of infinity or wholeness. In the age-old image of the Ouroboros lies the thought of devouring oneself and turning oneself into a circulatory process, for it was clear to the more astute alchemists that the prima materia of the art was man himself. The Ouroboros is a dramatic symbol for the integration and assimilation of the opposite, i.e. of the shadow. This 'feed-back' process is at the same time a symbol of immortality, since it is said of the Ouroboros that he slays himself and brings himself to life, fertilizes himself and gives birth to himself. He symbolizes the One, who proceeds from the clash of opposites, and he therefore constitutes the secret of the prima materia which [...] unquestionably stems from man's unconscious."

Celtic Knot Letter - Cruachan
Pencil on a sticky note. I  am not kidding!! :) I wanted to make a  bookmark inspired by the logo of the Irish lads from Cruachan and I just had one of them sticky notes flying around. Here's what came out of it. I quite like it. I use it for my books. It's quite handy too. 

Band

Cruachan is a folk metal band from DublinIreland that has been active since the 1990s. They have been acclaimed as having "gone the greatest lengths of anyone in their attempts to expand" the genre of folk metal.[1] They are recognised as one of the founders of the genre of folk metal. With a specific focus on Celtic music and the use of Celtic mythology in their lyrics, Cruachan's style of folk metal is known as Celtic metal.[2] The band named themselves after the archaeological site of Rathcroghan in Ireland also known as Cruachan.

Rathcroghan

Rathcroghan (IrishRáth Cruachan, meaning "fort of Cruachan") is a complex of archaeological sites near Tulsk in County Roscommon, Ireland. It is identified as the site of Cruachan, the traditional capital of the Connachta, a term used to describe the prehistoric and early historic rulers of the western territory. The Rathcroghan Complex (Crúachan Aí) is a unique archaeological landscape with many references found in early Irish medieval manuscripts.

Located on the plains of Connacht (Mag nAí/Machaire Connacht), Rathcroghan is one of the six Royal Sites of Ireland. This landscape which extends over six square kilometres, consists of 240 plus archaeological sites, sixty of which are protected national monuments.

These monuments range from the Neolithic (4000 - 2500 BC), through the Bronze (2500 - 500 BC) and Iron Age (500 BC - 400 AD), to the early medieval period and beyond. These monuments include burial mounds, ringforts and medieval field boundaries amongst others. The most fascinating of these are the multi period Rathcroghan Mound, the mysterious cave of Oweynagat, the Mucklaghs - a spectacular set of linear earthworks, as well as the Carns medieval complex.

There are many interesting historic references to Rathcroghan (Ráth Crúachan) recorded in early medieval manuscripts, including the 12th century Lebor na hUidre. Rathcroghan is recorded as the location of one of the great fairs of Ireland, as well as being one of the island's three great heathen cemeteries. It is also the location for the beginning and end of a national epic tale – an Táin Bó Cuailnge, and the royal seat of Medb (Maeve), Connacht's Warrior Queen.

Uniquely, Rathcroghan possesses an entrance to the Otherworld, described in the medieval period as "Ireland's Gate to Hell", located at Oweynagat (the Cave of the Cats). The cave has associations with the pagan festival of SamhainHalloween, as well as being described as the "fit abode" of Morrigan, a Celtic Goddess of pre-Christian Ireland.

White Tree of Gondor
Skected with a pencil and then covered with a black drawing pen on white A4 printing paper.

White Tree of Gondor

The White Tree of Gondor stood as a symbol of Gondor in the Court of the Fountain in Minas Tirith. Its predecessor was a seedling of Nimloth planted in Minas Ithil, that was destroyed before the end of the Second Age.

The White Tree also appears in the Livery of Elendil, as a motif upon Gondor's flag.

History

__________________________________________________________________

First White Tree

The first White Tree of Gondor came from a fruit that Isildur, at great personal risk, managed to steal from Nimloth the Fair, the White Tree of Númenor, before that one was destroyed at Sauron's insistence. He suffered many wounds at this mission, and he came near death, but when the first leaf opened in the spring, Isildur was healed of his wounds.

This sapling was brought to Middle-earth on Isildur's ship, and it was eventually planted in Minas Ithil before his house. But when Sauron returned to Middle-earth, he launched a sudden attack in S.A. 3429 that captured Minas Ithil, and he burned the White Tree. Isildur escaped taking with him again a sapling.

Second White Tree


In the T.A. 2, Isildur planted the seedling of the White Tree in Minas Anor in memory of his brother, Anárion.

This White Tree lasted until T.A. 1636, when the Great Plague hit Gondor, killing among many others King Telemnar and his children.

Third White Tree


See also: Dead Tree

A third sapling was planted in T.A. 1640 by King Tarondor and died in T.A. 2872 with the death of the Ruling Steward Belecthor II.[2]

Since no seedling was found, it was left standing after its death.[2] When eventually replaced in T.A. 3019, it was placed in the Tombs of the Kings with royal honors.

Fourth White Tree


When Aragorn became king he discovered (with Gandalf's help) a sapling of the White Tree on the high hallow upon the slopes of Mindolluin, high above the city, which he reverently planted in its place. In June of T.A. 3019 the sapling bloomed.

Telperion
Recent photograohy from a quite recent trip in the woods. 


History and Etymology

Telperion was the elder of the Two Trees, and bloomed during the first part of the Valian day, followed by Laurelin. It endured throughout the Years of the Trees, but came to an end in the dreadful Darkening of Valinor.

However one of Telperion's flowers survived the Darkening, and was set aloft by the Valar; this was the light of the Moon, carried by Tilion the Maia

Telperion
 comes from telepi "silver". The exact etymology of the ending -rion is not entirely clear, but it can mean something like "great wreathed one" (Cf. ríarielle).

The Quenya form was actually Tyelperion but Quenya adopted telpë from Telerin
