Tiphareth & Geburah is the 18th of 32 connecting paths of the Tree. The Path is The way of Faith: Tiphareth, (the sphere at the centre of the Tree, is the link between the lower personality spheres and the higher transpersonal spheres of the Tree) the centred self, 'the silent witness', also relating to Sun, Geburah, the sphere of the archetype of Will and Power, also relating to Mars.
This book is made with hand cut and collage images (part triangles and part circles) on blue & white 220 gsm Fabriano paper. The page are folded in proportion to the rules of the golden section (which is also the Fibonacci ratio). However you chooce to turn the pages, each page is so constructed to interact with both the previous and following image. The binding of the book: part leparello and part convetional binding, allows for almost endless exploration of each image".
