Box of Dreams:
Herm

Dreamed 2009/9/8 by Jenny Badger Sultan

THE DREAM

In a tall glass room, this rather classical male torso is floating, like an ancient herm on a plinth of air, under a great dome like the Pantheon.

Someone asks "Is it floating there, or is it stable?"

I reply, "it's floating."

TENTATIVE INTERPRETATION

A puzzling image. Representing Hermes, the psychopomp, protector of the crossroads?

--Jenny Badger Sultan

Detail of acrylic painting of a dream by Jenny Badger Sultan: 'Herm'. Five robed figures look up, puzzled.

NOTE

This mysterious dream echoes an earlier one in the Box of Dreams: My Design for the Dome.
