The sacrificial Poppies: شقائق النعمان

جاءني صديق في المنام وطلب مني ان ارسم شقائق النعمان، جراحات تموز، لا اعرف ما يعني المنام ولكن هذه هي صور للشقائق ارجو ان تكون مقدمة للرسمِ

A friend of mine appeared in my dream and asked me to draw some poppies. Poppies in Arabic are called shaqa’iq al Numaan, the wounds of Adonis,  in reference to the sacrificial death of Adonis and his rebirth in the spring. I do   not know what the dream means. but I thought I shall post some images of potpies until I have the time to paint them


Dreams speak to me

Colours speak to me

The slain god speaks to me

The slain youths speak to me

Why is the earth so red

?Why is “Christ’s blood streaming in the firmament”

The earth is so green and the poppies are so red

I see nothing but green and red

An immensity of them of green and red
