Door, 2000-2003

In addition to the woodburned designs on this door, it is also adorned with other natural objects such as feathers, fur, wasp nests, a deer jaw bone and teeth, sponges, shells and seed pods.  It also contains two built-in planters at the bottom of the door that hold two living plants.  Although most of the shapes are pretty abstract, near the center is a region with a lot of animals of my own creation.  The part near the lower left looks like a digestive system.  God's Eye appears near the upper left, shooting out symbols of my own design.  Near the bottom right is a trilobite.
