The image depicts the three goddesses Urd, Verdandi, and Skuld, whose names translate as What Is, What Was and What Will Be, revealing their immortal nature and relationship to time. Here they are spinning the thread of time that represents the events in the world and the tapestry of life, as they are the fates who decree the lives of men. They sit beneath the Tree of life, another ubiquitous cultural theme and which is in fact a symbolic representation of the Goddess nature her self.

Her triple nature represents the three worlds of heaven earth and the underworld that she rules and was symbolically incorporated into the designs of the Tree of life since earliest times.

I love the way that mythology has this elegant and sublimely coherent algebra of symbols that have been so well preserved through the thousands of years since they were first conceived and it makes me proud to be able to continue this preservation through my art.

The quality of this print is astounding; I have wanted one of Jake's prints for a long time, it was better than I had hoped!

Incredible artwork! Really unique! Gives unique feeling in the room where we have it and its energy feels very alive. It projects something special to the whole house; like a divine protection.

The intersection of true artful human expression and well-tended subconscious emanations - this is how I see Jake's art, and especially 'Gemini.'
I was delighted to come across Jake's art. The process of discovery and acquisition of the print have been wonderfully human and pleasant. Mark is an absolute delight in correspondence. I can't wait to have the print back from the framers' and hang it on my wall. I may just place a chair before it and sit with it when I feel in need of a meaningful conversation.
Thank you, Jake & Mark

Dit is het tweede werk dat ik heb gekocht van Jake. Het intrigerende The Lady Vanishes uit 2013 smaakte naar meer, waarop ik besloot mijn verzameling aan te vullen met Spiritus Sanctus, een totaal ander werk (kleiner en op op paneel) uit 2015. Gekocht via de website, dus een gokje hoe het zou uitpakken. Maar ik heb er geen spijt van. Het is een mooie uitbreiding, waar ik met veel plezier en bewondering van geniet.
