Myths of Creation and Destruction Part II
Temple of the Sun God
I began this present work or 'inscape' wondering how Destruction could be beautiful. Essentially, it cannot, and my works are not 'pretty.' However, there is a parallel between the blinding light of sexual ecstasy and the nuclear bomb. It is for this reason that the central work of the inscape is the two-sided shrine entitled A Tender Moment: The Detonation Of The Bomb.
A prerequisite for the male acolytes to enter the Temple was to pass through Her. I chose to depict "Her", the distillation of the Feminine, as two giant clitoris shapes forming the sides of a Gothic arch.
