Planetary Healer:Fire Keeper
Mother Earth reminds us of our responsibility to conserve our resources and tend our garden, especially our inner one, so she is able to bring forth life in abundant forms over and over every season. Here she stands in her hand-knit woolen dress (sometimes she is a bit tired of her trusty well-worn brown one, and sneaks into her other secret favorite colors), hand-knit shawl, doting on her creations. About 7 – 8” tall, with sculpted face and a firm cloth-covered wooden base.
In very early times as it is told, polypore mushrooms, hard, hoof-like mushrooms, conks is a fire-starter mushroom and allowed our ancestors to carry fire from one location to another. So this position was a very revered one.
This fire keeper asked for a flame-boyant look, and I think she does in her mutli-colored hand-knit woolen dress and hand-knit and hand spun woolen shawl, She just found one of the treasured mushrooms, and knows what to do with it I am sure! She is about 11" tall.
