The way we stand, you can see we have grown up this way together, out of the same soil, with the same rains, leaning in the same way toward the sun. See how we lean together in the same direction. How the dead limbs of one of us rest in the branches of another. ~Susan Griffin, Women and Nature
Greek mythology abounds with tales of Dryads, Hamadryads, Alseids and Meliads – various trees and groves inhabited by female spirits as nymphs. Groups of three women carry additional archetypal meaning. Where are the Graces, the Fates, the Norns to regulate our activities and shape our fate? Perhaps they, too, are trapped within the trees.
Individual pieces are untitled and unique.
