Tulip with Bones I
One lone tulip sprung up in the garden in April, contrasted against the adobe gate. In the ancient Greek tradition of Aparchai, I sacrificed my first tulip to the gods.
From April 20th, 2020:
I love old myths of muses and devotional offerings. Aparchai, sacrificing the first of something to the gods, is in traces of old mosaics and flaked off painting half-buried. It's some of the oldest still life art recorded. Sacrificing the first of something reflects both gratitude and desperation. In this case, our first tulip from a secret garden around the house is offered for peace, health, and regular visits from the artistic muses.
