I found this a long time ago and intended on using it somehow with my wayward woodwitch site. It bears somewhat of a relation to the influence of the eerie image of crossed sticks. I cant remember the origin or nature of this exerpt but im sure I have it buried somewhere. It is written about the influences of Lee Brown Coye:
"One recurring feature in Coye's work is the motif of wooden sticks. In 1938, when Coye was living in the North Pitcher, New York, area, where he had spent much of his childhood, he encountered a curious grouping of sticks. On a walk past an abandoned farmhouse, he came across boards and pieces of wood, which had been set perpendicular to one another, surrounding the site. Neither inside nor out could Coye find an explanation for the presence of these crossed sticks. In the years following, Coye remained interested in the significance of his discovery. When he returned to the site in 1963, there was nothing left of the building or the sticks, and he never found out why they had been there or who it was that had arranged them in such a manner. Because of the strangeness of the entire experience, these forms never left Coye, and they appear in many of his paintings and illustrations."
