The Imago Vitae Logo and Watermark
I have watermarked many of my images to preclude their piracy; here's what that graphic represents (to me).
Back in the late 1970's, I asked Michael Sullivan Smith
, a graphic, type
and font designer to make me a logo, based on the Dove of the Holy
Spirit. It appears many places, but the example I gave to him was
its presence in the Chair of St. Peter in the Vatican in Rome. He
presented me with this lovely art which I have used since in many ways.
I should say that I am not
a Catholic, but I have great reverence for, and identification with,
this symbol, the most intangible and numinous icon of Christianity.
Recently, I had the epiphany that I had followed in my father's
footsteps, in a way: he, as an eye surgeon, had chosen the Eye of Horus,
an ancient Egyptian symbol of protection, royal power and good health.
as a logo for his stationary.
