day 193 ~ genesis

 "The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn." 

~Ralph Waldo Emerson

This mandala is the symbol of all symbols. The Cosmic Egg represents the Logos; the ellipse contains within itself all Arabic numerals and letters.

I first became enamored with this symbol when I saw it on the cover of Tony Vigorito's first novel, "Just A Couple of Days". The original cover art was designed by Jessica Maquire. Since that time, I have created many versions of my own. I thank them both for the inspiration.

  1. Thanks, ladies.

    If you haven't already, I highly recommend clicking on the link to "Just A Couple of Days" to see the original artwork. It was so inspiring that someone had it tatooed onto her back!

  2. Thanks for taking the time to play catch up in the forest, Rick.

    Missed you.
