The Hermit's Path
This image is only available as a 11 x 14 print, matted with black and arrives in a clear, sealed bag.
The Hermit stands alone on the top of a mountain with a lantern in his hand.
Mountains typically symbolize achievement, growth, and accomplishment. The Hermit has attained his spiritual pinnacle and is ready to share his knowledge with others. He is also continuing the path he has chosen, committed to his goal of ultimate awareness. The star in the lantern is a six-pointed star (the Seal of Solomon, a symbol of wisdom). The staff carried by the Hermit is the patriarch's staff, a symbol of the narrow path of initiation and an emblem of power and authority. It represents the Hermit's ability to use his isolation and the knowledge he has gained as a tool upon his path to reach even higher levels of awareness. The staff is in the Hermit's left hand, the hand associated with the subconscious mind. He wears the grey cloak of invisibility. His secrets are not for everyone, only for those earnestly seeking them and those willing to climb the heights to wisdom.
