labyrinths

Found this simple, but lovely piece posted on a fantastic art tumblr, but unfortunately, there was no information on the artist. I’ve been on the lookout for labyrinth art (which is surprisingly difficult to find!) ever since I began walking the labyrinth at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco (where I always have a powerful experience.) Labyrinths are so special, at least to me, because they’re meant to remind us of the repetitive nature of our path, while always leading us deeper, closer to the core. For this labyrinth, I love that the core is a tree of life :)

As a loosely related aside, I just had a random dream recall from last night. David Bowie approached me on the street (in NYC) and invited me up to his apartment via a secret panel in his lobby that led to a secret elevator that opened to a secret hallway lined with cut mirrors. He was in full Labyrinth regalia, except his hair and makeup tended more toward a cat version of Jareth the Goblin King. I think my subconscious was getting my 80’s movies mixed up because Bowie did not star in Cat People (which I’ve never seen), but as I just discovered a moment ago, he DID write the title song for the soundtrack. I’m kinda of proud of my subconscious for managing to pull that connection together. Unfortunately, Peter woke me before I got the scoop on what the Goblin King had in store. Though, secret elevators and hallways can only mean deep subconscious stuff.
