Woodcut print of a woman, facing her back to the viewer with long reddish brown hair, which she separates with her hands. She has a backless dress that creates a small ocean under her. A white dog swims in the sea and flowers grow out of her back.

From the artist: "Energy courses through the spine like the stalk of a plant. It sprouts tendrils and flowers that reach for the light. My friend experienced a serious car accident that damaged her spine, and through patience and prayer, her body slowly healed itself. Fragile yet strong, the body is a tangle of contradictions. Such also is the contradiction in printmaking, the application of sharp tools to carve into the dense wood, and the acupressure of the wood blocks into the soft mulberry paper. The paper, like skin, soaks up the ink in its fibers, staining the cellulose with pigments from the earth."
