What an incredible piece of artwork. The feather practically floats off the rock. I love the juxtaposition of delicate tendrils against the hard stone, don't you?

I have a feather just like the one painted on this rock sitting on my microwave. Found it while walking in the back field behind my house. There is something definitely special about a feather.

What a beautiful piece of art! I love how it can be displayed on its own, or carried close to the heart. A true touchstone...what a beautiful, beautiful gift.

kath said...

hmmm, I thought I had put a comment here, but I don't see it - if it's a duplicate, my apologies!

Toni said...

I think everybody should have a touchstone. This is such a perfect pairing, too. The feather so that our worries will float away, and the stone to keep us grounded.

I have a feather ring carved from a seashell; I've always loved the sea and sky symbolism of it. this feather and stone could start a whole new collection ; )
