Earth Wake!


Drawing (for my friend Scilla), quoting a snippet of a poem by Charlotte Tall Mountain that seemed very apt.  The image is inspired by a play on the Celtic idea of the Addanc – a great serpent that slumbers under the hills and must be placated (fed sacrifices) or else he may waken, rise up and eat us all up!  I like to see the great Addanc as a dragon who represents the natural world, including the people and animals and plants that live in harmony with the earth and with each other, mostly sleeping, but now beginning to stir and awaken to take on the threat to all life: the machines of corporations!  EARTH WAKE  –  Grrraaaaarrrrrr!!!
