About The Artwork: 

Introducing "Lavender Moon," a surreal black-and-white illustration featuring an old ship's steering wheel, surrounded by beetles holding various moon phases. In between these beetles, stalks of lavender can be seen.

The moon is a powerful and ancient symbol associated with life, death, and rebirth cycles. It can represent feminine energy, intuition, and the subconscious mind. The moon's phases are also associated with different emotions and energies, such as the full moon representing fullness, completion, and illumination.

Beetles can represent transformation, resurrection, and protection. They are often seen as a symbol of overcoming obstacles and fears and can also describe the process of shedding old skin and emerging as a new and transformed being.

Lavender is a symbol of calmness, purity, and tranquility. It is often associated with relaxation, spiritual healing, and emotional balance. Lavender can also represent love, devotion, and loyalty.

A ship's steering wheel symbolizes direction and control and is often associated with navigating life's challenges and finding one's true path. It can also represent leadership, responsibility, and the ability to adapt and adjust to changing circumstances.

Taken together, these symbols can be interpreted in various ways. They can represent the cyclical nature of life, transformation and growth, emotional balance and spiritual healing, and the need for direction, control, and adaptability in navigating life's journey. 

“Tell me the story... About how the sun loved the moon so much... That she died every night... Just to let him breathe...” ― Hanako Ishii
