It is customary in a straw bale house to have a 'truth window'.
I chose a nautical theme, with an old porthole, with a lovely 'petina'.
Inside I have placed a spirit bear.
Native American legends tell of magical spirits that dwell within the forms of small carved animals. The most powerful of these spirits - strength and well being, are found in the form of the bear.
I felt it was appropriate that this spirit live in my truth window!
