Hebe's chalice


 The myth tells that the goddess Hebe lost her chalice of youth and an eagle fought to recover the cup and returned it to her. Wherever the bird shed a drop of blood or a feather, up sprang a Rowan tree.

Dance in the Light of the Sun and the Moon


 












A sky dancing Chodma inspired by Machig Lapdron who founded the lineage of Chod practitioners. The sun and moon both shine in the sky symbolising that the dance is happening outside time. The Chodma is wearing bone ornaments and plays a Chod drum and a vajra bell. The Khatvangha on the left of the painting is a golden staff rich in symbolism.
