Divine Nature :: Holly Wilmeth
From a recent trip to the coast of Oaxaca, Mexico, Blend contributor Holly Willmeth’s Divine Nature was born. Embracing serendipity and the spiritual connection between humans and animals, Wilmeth brings to life hauntingly beautiful images of connections, transformations, spirit and love.
“This project is a series of images that represents the crossroad where woman meets the divine spirit of nature in the form of animals, and where she embraces it. There’s a long history in shamanic traditions and ancient cultures where humans have imbued themselves with the special qualities that animals have and their relationship to the world. Eating a part of the animal, or wearing a part of the animal, or using the animal as a totem deeply permeates us with their special powers. We want to come back to that state of grace where we are aligned with nature as animals are in the right relationship with their environment.”—Holly Wilmeth
