What is it He Saw
On top of the Hill
That His Eyes grew wide
And His Mouth stood still?
You can see his face even when closing your eyes.
You can feel that he is on the edge of... What? A guttural scream? A revelation?
You are not sure if he is moving the moment you look away.
Maybe you need to look over your shoulder, because
what is it thats so full of wonderous emotion for the prohpet? It must be right behind you, it is palpable!
Is it something positive? Evil? Ever changing?
You want to trace his symbols, carved into the old flesh. What is their purpose?
His whole life he was destined to be the one looking at the prophecy and bringing the knowledge back to his people.
So what is your destiny?
Stoneware clay, sculpted, carved, hollowed out (insert leds to see liqht through his pupils), bisquefired, oxidewashed, partly glazed, highfired.
