This is my entry for the Collage Obsession Challenge where the theme is "Animals". I used a portion of the image provided (Lions), image from (Dover), background from (scrapbookgraphics) and moon (wikimedia).
I have always been fascinated with the relationship between humans and animals -as totems, teachers and spirit guides on our journey. We all have powerful draws to certain animals and we can learn from their characteristics and natural behavior to use in our lives. All cultures seem to carry stories and powerful legends of animal guides and sometimes "shifter" people who can take on their animal guides' persona and become them. This digital collage as in the "Strength" card in the Tarot, shows a woman at peace and unafraid amongst her powerful and majestic animal companions at home in the natural world embodying her deepest roots.
