ARTIST STATEMENT: “The pine cone has been an inspiration to cultures throughout history. Dionysus carried a staff with a carved pine cone symbol on its’ tip. So does the papal staff of the pope. To the Celts, it was a fertility symbol and our own human pinal gland looks like a pine cone (hence the name)and is the epicenter of our enlightenment.
There is hope that evolves naturally after the presence of fire. We can look to the pine cone as our symbol for the promise of new growth.”
