THE DOLPHIN OPENS NEW WORLDS
The dolphin leaps boldly and playfully out of the waves, leaving the world of water behind him temporarily, flying through the air with joy and a perfect sense of balance. He feels at home in both mediums, including the great ocean depths which are beyond our experience.
A number of people have see his breathtaking leap into the air because they have been scouring the horizon. Excited by this sudden apparition, they are now even more eager to watch attentively. As a result they see more, whether on land (two crop circles can be seen in this painting) or in the sky. Others do not see the dolphin at all because they are distracted and looking in another direction. The effect of seeing the dolphin is different according to the situation and emotional state of each observer.
One woman responds by going into deep meditation during which she sees HERSELF in her mind’s eye. She realises that she has a huge ocean of hidden potential inside her which rarely comes into view (symbolised in the painting by the submerged underwater pyramid in her hair)
One boy is so filled with enthusiasm that he tries to jump as high as the dolphin. Another boy is sad because the free dolphin reminds him of his goldfish at home who is imprisoned in a fishbowl. The girl on the left is actually leaping out of a fishbowl – symbolic of her desire to leave her narrow limitations and behavioural patterns and explode with love and joy.
The man sitting on the rock is so filled with longing and feels so at ONE with the dolphin that he wishes to communicate with him, and so he starts to sing.
As a result of experiencing the vastness of that body of water we call the ocean, one woman starts to think more about water – what its function is and where it comes from. She no longer considers water as a substance which automatically comes out of a tap, but recognises its life-giving and living properties. Thus she is shown here drinking from a tap in deep gratitude.
Our encounters with animals and all nature are capable of opening new worlds for us. Here, this potential is symbolised by spheres large and small which float on the sea, in the air and in the distance in outer space.
Everything in this painting is enclosed by the arms of CREATION whose hands join at the top to support the intertwining strands of the DIVINE MASCULINE and the DIVINE FEMININE - energies which are present in each of us and whose balance is so necessary in our present world.
