SERIES "CELESTIAL GATEWAYS"
Somewhere in the unknown depths of space, the remains of the former power, curiosity and belief of a great civilization has sunk into the centuries. The "celestial gateways" have been lost. What is it, simply fantasy, a beautiful legend, or echoes of a mighty wisdom?



CELESTIAL GATEWAYS (24" x 36") $550

THE MIRROR OF THE WORLD (24" x 36") $500
Once a year a thin beam of sunlight peers into a deep cave, forcing the stone to light up in flickering colors.
