Goddess Spirit and the Tree of Water
$130.00 / Sold Out / On Sale
Ellie painted this robe while reflecting on trees and how they pull water up from their roots hundreds of feet into the air against gravity. Although the Tree of Water no longer flowers, it continues to stand in a hidden valley, purifying water and air as it has for a millenia. The Tree of Water's companion is the white serpent. They have grown up together since snakelet and sapling. Nourished by the tree, the serpent has grown into a giant. The serpent is also a familiar of Benzaiten, the goddess of everything that flows: water, time, words, speech, eloquence, music and by extension, knowledge. When you adorn this robe, Ellie envisions you digging your roots in deep in search of ancient waters. She wishes for you to feel grounded as you pull these waters up. She hopes that you’ll feel guided and protected by the white serpent to fearlessly shed skin and be reborn. Let your rainbow light flow into every room and space in which you preside.
