Oil painting in abstract expressionist style. The work was exhibited as part of Mary Horn's show Divine Disclosure- Darkness to Light, in the catalogue there are Mary’s words regarding the work:

If we enter into the mystery
I think we will leave creation alone
and not tinker and disturb
its own wisdom
Only the unwise think they know better
than ancient wisdom
of the living breathing earth.
When this wisdom is disturbed
We bring about distortion and death
that is irreversible
or will at least take milleniums to heal
