I first met Geb in a dream. Stories depict him as a king, bull and other personas but, in my dream he was a serpent.
The world is a precious place and Geb was angry.
Geb was the Egyptian god of the Earth. It was believed in ancient Egypt that Geb’s laughter were earthquakes and that he allowed crops to grow. In my dream he had set a time on man.
In my painting of this representational subconscious imagery I show Geb as he was. Proud. Angry. One hand at one with the earth, his charge, and the other holding the card of the Afterlife and an hourglass held together by two snakes…one dark and one light…yin and yang…evil and good…night and day.
The hourglass is running out.
