Roots + Wings

Trees represent growth and strength, with roots to ground us in our traditions. Birds in flight are symbols of freedom, with the power of dreams and life renewed. Together, Roots + Wings create powerful images of inspiration and tools to heal the soul. These images are a symbolic representation of emotional healing, from devastation through rejuvenation.

Roots and Wings Series by Sara Harley

The Roots + Wings exhibit was held at the Margaret Hennigar Public Library in February 2018. Each image was paired with verse to represent emotions ranging from devastation through rejuvenation.
