This tree image has references to the 'Tree of Life', a symbol found in many religious and philosophical traditions of the world. With the rise of patriarchy, particularly in the Western church and culture causing the demonisation of the feminine and her power, the Tree was used as a hidden symbol for the feminine and her power within Mystery schools in Europe. The Tree can also be read as a symbol for the self.
'These Tree paintings represent an energetic process towards more whole, integrated masculine and feminine principles within the individual self.' Nicholas Hales, 2018.
