The Guardians of The Giving Tree by Victor Nunnally

"The Guardians of The Giving Tree" 80" x 48" Stained Glass Mosaic by Victor Nunnally

Green Man Mosaics created this piece a year ago for a home in Fayetteville, NC.  My camera was dying so the images came out a little unfocused.  I need to catch up with April and John and asked them if I can come over and shoot some new images of this 24 sqft Catherdral Ceiling Window.  I was reading that the giving trees of myrrh and frankincense are coming under threat from the agriculture movements in Ethiopia and Somalia.  Two of the holy oils face extinction.  Not good.  Research the medicinal properties of both gum resins.  Very Fascinating.

Holy Trinity by Victor Nunnally

The Holy Trinity is a requested piece.  I was asked to create a descending white dove with out stretched wings under a full moon along with a mirror Episcopalian cross bordered in red.  A representation of The Holy Trinity.  A Garden of Gardenia with agates, angels, representation of family such as a green eye and the number 21.  I placed 21 gold gems throughout the garden and over to the right you will find a green eye.

A challenging piece for sure. It has a potency. Thank you Martha.  It looks perfect where we hung it.  I look forward to creating it's companion for your front door. 

I found inspiration from Gian Lorenzo Bernini - Dove of the Holy Spirit (ca. 1660, stained glass, Throne of St. Peter, St. Peter's Basilica, Vatican)
