Final drawing in the series, from an Achaemenian armband, two griffins meet face to face, wings outstretched, in profile. Facing one another through the sky, their torsos are embedded in the twin continents of Ollin and Tethys; their legs and feet stretch their roots into soil, the one soil, at the root from which both have been born into the world. The death of one is the death of the other; likewise their lives. Here is an image of what we are to one another. There is wisdom from the past embedded in the piles of rocks strewn around the globe. They are markings for a path around the globe, coordinated with celestial patterns. Follow the lines across the stars, through the forests and across the mountains and the seemingly endless sea, to the place we started from. Here is the point of departure and the place of return. Rooted in the Earth, we return to the Earth, after the brief blossoming life of a vision shines through the blue empty sky, of a brother and a sister, partners on the path through the black tunnel to who we are becoming.
