Mother of Evergreens


Mother of Evergreens

from 50.00

The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn. - Raph Waldo Emerson

My deep love for evergreen trees inspired this portrait of the "Mother of Evergreens", titled in reference to the fact that a single pinecone holds the potential to seed an entire forest. As 'seeds of life,' pinecones represent potent metaphors for the power of individuals 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. The Pineal Gland, shaped like (and named after) the Pinecone, is at the geometric centre of the human 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.”
