According to the talented artist Lyla Mori (aka moonflesh), October is her favorite month. Born in October, this probably influences all her creativity and in particular, way of life. Undoubtedly, the gallery of stunning Gothic mini embroidery pieces is a truly work of art. Besides, her art is exquisite and inspirational, and behind each embroideried piece is an interesting story. For example, a stunning collection of embroideries with willow branches and urns titled “Sacred”, inspired by the gravestones in Salem’s Burying Point Cemetery.

Eternal Serpent

Eternal Serpent

The Eternal Serpent – a gray urn emblazoned with a sun. The urn with a crescent moon cradling a gray moonstone cabochon. A milky white snake wraps itself around the vessel. Two willow branches encircle the scene. Traditionally, urns and willows found on gravestones, are both popular imagery. In particulasr, the urn represents the soul, and clearly has ties to Death as it is a vessel that holds the ashes of the body. The branches of the weeping willow, as well as the tree itself, signify sorrow and mourning. Besides, associated with various deities of death and the underworld.
The sun symbolizes the soul and heaven, and sometimes the ascent of the spirit. It can also symbolize the beginning and end of life. The moon signifies death and rebirth. Meanwhile, snakes represent power, transformation, and rebirth. Seen as guardians of the underworld, snakes deserve this title, due to the fact that they make their homes in cracks and holes underground. In addition, the serpent is a symbol of eternal life.
