Stone #120 is a new addition to the Northstar Gallery "Stone Spirits" portfolio. It is comprised of 100 exposures at varying precise focus points, the 100 exposures are then combined into a single image. The blood red crystalline structures reflect the fiery process combined with great pressure and complex chemical processes that formed stone #120 many millions of years ago. It reminds us of the cycle of creation followed by destruction followed by rebirth and then renewal and creation. Change, rebirth and renewal do not occur without the process of dying to self as an essential part of rebirth. Stone #120 captures these elements as the essence of "Anima Mundi" or Soul of the World.
