Silkscreen Solstice patch by Liminal Spaces Handmade
"I came up with this design on the day of winter solstice, worked on it through winter and spring, and printed it just before summer solstice.
The artwork represents the way (for me, at least) light, in summer, comes from outside, and less inside light is needed, while in winter, light comes more from the internal, be that candles, electricity, or, on a spiritual level, deeper introspection and self-care.
The black triangles on each side of the centre represent the balance points of spring and fall Equinox.
The print is designed to be completely rotatable; which side is "up" just depends on the season, or the time of day, or what part of the image speaks to you at the moment."
