Art symbols have been used forever as a form of expression. A way to convey a thought or emotion. Here are a few examples of various symbols I have used in my art.
This is an example of the The Prayers
petroglyph found in the western United States.
I use it in my pieces to symbolize the connection man has with Spirit.
If I am doing a piece that I consider a PRAYER to spirit, I like to include this symbol.
is used in many ancient and modern pieces of Art to depict SPIRIT; Great Mystery, God, All that is, the Great unknown.
This is an example where the spiral symbol means something different. It signifies A group moving to a new destination or direction.
This is an example of the spiral being in the palm of the hand. It signifies the SOUL.
Hands were always used by Ancient cave artists to leave their own personal mark. Today, Artists sign their art with their signature instead.
The spiral is used in this piece to denote the Divine.
The X is a Viking Rune symbol that encompasses the lesson and theme of PARTNERSHIP.
Combining these two symbols creates the message of Union with the Divine.
