Religious Icon

 After watching the film Dead Man and seeing the scene on the left were the sherif is killed and falls on the fire pit, turning into a Religious icon, something clicked. It's a simple image  but says a lot about the religious relationship we have with nature, also touching upon Wicca.

Wicca: a religion influenced by pre-Christian beliefs and practices of western Europe that affirms the existence of supernatural power (as magic) and of both male and female deities who inhere in nature and that emphasises ritual observance of seasonal and life cycles
It also looks at death and how when we die nature claims us back.
Wiccan's share a belief in the importance of the feminine principle, a deep respect for nature, and a pantheistic and polytheistic worldview. They practice some form of ritual magic, almost always considered good or constructive. Some are solitary practitioners; others belong to covens.

These were taken with my Olympus and my Diana camera.

'The garden is my church, Nature is my Heaven.'
