Mandala with Pastels

“Therefore a person contains both the likeness of heaven and earth in himself or herself. . . A person has a head in which there is clarity, inspiration, and reason–just as the sky contains light-giving things, air and winged creatures. A person also has the means to bring forth new life and the desire to do so–just as the earth has the means to bring forth greenness, fruitfulness, and animals.”

---Scivias II.1.2

Hildegard of Bingen, Doctor of the Church
