This mature centaur stands protectively behind his human mate, who rests against him just below his chin. His ears are laid back – the sign in a horse of relaxed energy.
Here is the story this centaur told me.
This is a memorial assemblage of statues commemorating the long-living nature spirit’s love for his human mate, at a time when she had grown old. It records a love story that has been.
This was a woman pioneer, her human family deceased, living alone in the wilderness, calling on the universe for protection. The centaur heard the call and came to protect her. They bonded across dimensions.
This is a family portrait of a long-time couple grown old together. Theirs is a love that would not be recognized by many in the human world but it was true and permanent. The relaxed casualness of both beings indicates their long intimacy and love for each other.
The sculptures show the centaur with a mature face, high cheek bones, ears laid back (e.g. he is not in danger from anything, but is in control), and long thick hair/mane streaming down his back. The woman has a bouffant hair style, a small nose, and is dressed for chilly weather, with a shawl and thick clothes. She is heavy set.
Facing the couple are two humanoid figures – servants? crowned king and queen? Stretching back along the centaur’s body are many other beings the partners protected and protect – part of their energetic world. (In the best modern art symbolic style!)
These rock images are known in our human world as HooDoos. They are part of a vast complex of stone images that form a nature spirit museum in what we humans call Bryce Canyon, Utah. This sculpture is located at Paria Point.
