About

“These films are meant to be enjoyed simply through their images.

There is no need to seek out meaning behind the forms, however I will share my train of thought regarding them.

Traditional symbols for #26 are hand or mountain and head or heaven or the “creative”.

In #26 describes the stillness of “mountain” bears down on an expanding energy like the wildness of animals or “heaven”- ly skies.

Some animals like antelope, cannot be tamed. The horse, however, has been tamed through the hand bridling the animal's power, domesticating it.

Animal husbandry was an early interpretation of this energy force that “contains the power of the great” like when one collects oneself, assembling inner and outer strength to face the world.

The double screened horse is presented in the colors that belong to #26's deeper, nuclear hexagram's essence of thunder over lake: the red-violet and bright green.” - L.W.
