Sacred Space Phoenix

Here's another of the designs I made for the Pagan/New Age convention "Sacred Space." Each year the convention had a different theme which had something to do with a season, a holiday, or some basic Pagan topic. This one seems appropriate for flowery Spring as we are enjoying the robins singing and April sunlight. The Phoenix is a traditional motif for resurrection. I used a style inspired by alchemical woodcuts to create the design, which went on the program book cover and the commemorative T-shirt. The Sacred Space convention disappeared in the mid-2000s but there is a date set for another one next year, just in case you want to participate.
