Faces of the Universe: Sacred Images
Did you ever lie in the yard and stare up at the clouds to see what they looked like? Didn’t we all do this as kids? Like clouds themselves, I looked at this book repeatedly and from a variety of angles before trying to describe it to you. Each of the images in this picture book is described with interpretations – most of them mystical, alien, religion or nature-inspired. There are photos of clouds that look like many things, ranging from someone’s Grandma to strange aliens, to Native American-inspired themes as well as angels. It’s quite likely you will see some of the same things the authors did in these pictures, and in some of them you might shrug your shoulders in wonder, unable to see what Tom and Carol Lumbrazo saw.
Faces of the Universe is a bit of a Rorschach test for us adults, but as a conversation piece, a tool to relax oneself into a meditative state, or to remind us of the imagination we had as kids, this book has a certain innocence and charm to it. Maybe it’s time I lay out in the back yard again myself.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
