Glastonbury Tor is the hill that rises above the town of Glastonbury in England. It is a sacred place of power. It is said that King Arthur and Lady Guinevere rest within the Tor and that the Tor is a gateway to the realms of Gwynn up Nudd, King of the Faerie and Lord of the Underworld. On one side of the Tor the Red and White Springs flow forth with their healing waters. On another side, Gog and Magog, said to be the two oldest oak trees in all of England still stand as giant sentinels. Apple trees flourish on the Tor and it is believed to be the original Isle of Avalon, Island of Apples, a gateway to the other worlds.

This piece is silk charmeuse fabric, handpainted with silk dyes and gutta, approximately 35x35 inches, stretched and tacked to a pinewood frame. On display during the month of Dec 2006 at The Artist Tree - 828 W Sprague Ave in downtown Spokane, WA.
