Mother of Evergreens

Mother of Evergreens

from 35.00

My deep love for trees and Pacific Northwest rainforests prompted this portrait of the "Mother of Evergreens," in reference to the fact that a single pinecone holds the potential to seed an entire forest. A true 'seed of life,' in an abstract way, I like to think that this is serves as a potent metaphor for the power of an individual to create change on a large scale.

Conifer Pine Trees are one of the most ancient plant genera on the planet, having existed nearly three times longer than all flowering plant species. The Pinecone is the evolutionary precursor to the flower, and its spines spiral in a perfect Fibonacci sequence, much like the 'Sacred Geometry' of a rose or a sunflower.

Throughout human history, Pinecones have served as a symbolic representation of Human Enlightenment, the Third Eye and the Pineal Gland. Our “Pine”al Gland, shaped like (and named after) the Pinecone, is at the geometric center of our brain and is intimately linked to our body's perception of light. It is considered by many ancient cultures to be our biological Third Eye, the "Seat of the Soul," the “Epicenter of Enlightenment.”
