The long human search for the lost forests that once covered the whole world.
Like the dove in the story of Noah, searching through oceans of waste, she carries the emblem of peace, nature, and regrowth...
Holly: hardy, protected, stays bright and colourful in the cold, protects against lightening...
Pine: hermaphrodite, fertility, tree-worship (at christmas we actually offer our gifts to this ancient, self-fertilizing, ever-green being), protection from disease.
meanings: beauty that shines even in difficult weather, protection, willpower, self-sufficiency, self pleasure, hermaphrodite/androgyne, strong natural forces, gaia...
she shape-shifts through a million forms of every beast on earth, carries oaks in her underpants, struggles on through the storms and tempests, searching, searching, falling, getting up..off
she merges with humanities waste to transform it
mother earth receives, carries, waits for the chance to grow.
beautiful shifts of rhythm and shape
a weird striptease, a strange dance
