The God Pan in His Bee Keeper Manifestation

I made this painting in the year 2012. I t was inspired by a powerful dream I had where the ancient god Pan came to me. This painting sold a few years ago, it lives in Switzerland now.

Green Dreams

These days

I dream in green

A wise maiden appears

and promises me a dream

And in that dream within a dream

I meet an ancient bee keeper

He has horns, and a beard and the hooves of a goat

Says he

The Honeybee tells us how to be

and not to be

that intimate connection between life, death and new life

On that knife’s edge

we live and breathe

and that is the knife

this wise maiden wields

Only when I open my eyes

do I realise

that the great god Pan spoke to me

These days I dream in green

and bees accompany me.
