NIGHT 246 – THE STORY OF NIMA IBN AL RABI AND NUM

8/1001

TWO OF SWORDS

The Female and the Sea

Mama and Caspian

Balanced, calm, controlled – and safe. The ‘blindfold’ is on my son as a whole head protection for the fencing swords (which have blunt circles instead of points).

Intuition, trust and a balance of forces

Part of a new Tarot series which is part of my 1001 Nights PhD

The Herald isn’t part of the Major Arcana. I am expanding the idea of the Major Arcana to include other archetypes and motifs. All part of the all-encompassing story of life as it unfolds just like the tales of the 1001 Nights ~

NIGHT 245 – THE STORY OF NIMA IBN AL RABI AND NUM

Trying hard to instil good burnishing habits in the youth of today. Using the power of imagination to harness vigorous burnishing enthusiasm.

Mama: “Gotta rub really hard so that the scary demon goes away!”

Toddler: “It’s not going to go away!”

Mama: “It’s not going to go away?”

Toddler: “Because it’s in the book!”

Can’t beat toddler logic.

NIGHT 243 – THE STORY OF NIMA IBN AL RABI AND NUM

Absolutely wonderful work in progress by one of my students on my Rocks, Clouds and aether courses, I’m so proud and impressed – starting as a mere wisp, rolling clouds spring forth from the Mughal prince’s delicate finger and wrap around his shoulder, turning into solid rock formations. The clouds that emanate from his finger (or from his imagination?) turn into the rocks that simultaneously protect and shield him. Swipe to see the work in progress.

It’s a beautiful work that combines those 3 elements (Earth – rocks; Air – clouds; Ether – spirit, and in that course we also cover angels and divs ie figures and faces). Heaven and earth meet, and humans are in the middle. This piece is full of meaning and layers. Excited to see it through to completion!
